0 Shares

  Last week my 13 year old showed me a list he had drawn up of things he planned to achieve this term. I was impressed as I had not prompted it and it was a sign that he knew what he wanted…they were his goals not mine. What impressed me with his list of goals was that he had also written some of the ways he intended to achieve them and as a Mum I intend to encourage him and hold him accountable.
