I asked my youngest four children what their goals for 2013 would be. I had to explain that goals were things they wanted to achieve or learn during the year.
Here are the answers they gave me:
Gabriella (10 years old):
"I want to earn more money from my shops." (I asked her how she planned on doing that. She answered:)
- "drawing and adding new designs to my stores"
- "letting more people know about my stores"
(Her stores, with her designs on gifts, can be found at:
Through Innocent Eyes (Printfection)
Through Innocent Eyes (Zazzle)
Gabby's Art and
Isabella (7 years old)
"I want to be a hairdresser and a writer." (I asked her how she planned on doing that. She answered.)
-"practicing cutting hair" (getting old wigs from second-hand shops, old Barbies, or, when allowed,
practicing on Cameron)
- "writing more stories"
(Bella's series of fairy stories can be found on her Tangle Fairies blog.)
Connor (6 years old)
"I want to get better at my video games." (I told him I am not accepting that as a proper goal, so I talked him into agreeing to this variation on it:)
"I try not to throw tantrums when I can't reach levels in my games"
Cameron (4 years old)
"I want to learn how to jump over houses." (Not very practical, so I asked him for one more. He answered:)
"I want to learn how to read all by myself." (Now this one I can help him with!)
What are your children's goals for 2013?
