At eight years old, third graders are learning how to set goals and understand the consequences of their actions. Parents can help by encouraging their child as she:
  • Explores the relationship of feelings, goals, and behavior.
  • Learns about choices and consequences.
  • Begins setting goals.
  • Becomes more responsible.
  • Learns how to work with others.
