Accountability and Goals at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat


What does this comic strip have to do with this week’s #DadChat? Nothing, but it’s funny!

Every New Year people make resolutions and every subsequent year they tend to renew the same ones. We are NOT going to do that at our first #DadChat of the New Year on Thursday, January 2 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. PT. Nope, we’re going to simply – funny choice of word – chat about Goals and Accountability. As much as it would seem ripe to make this discussion about D.C. and their total lack of accountability, we’re going to stay closer to home – our families and ourselves!

Mom of four teens

Insomuch as Bruce is cavorting with wild animals somewhere in Africa right now, Kelli Smithgall has graciously agreed to fill his shoes for this #DadChat. Kelli knows a thing or two about parenting, given she’s a single mom of FOUR teenagers, ages 13 – 19. She’s also a Social Media Marketer and has even been a guest on Bruce’s show twice.

Some questions to ask and ponder for this #DadChat:

~~ How do you make your kids accountable?

~~ How do you make YOURSELF accountable?

~~ Do you have an Accountability Buddy? What is an Accountability buddy?

~~ Is it wise to set goals? Do you?

~~ At what age should we expect to hold our kids accountable?

~~ When should we teach our kids to set goals? Should we set them for them when they’re still young?

~~ What goals have you set AND achieved?
