What are examples of short and long term goals?

Short term goals are more immediate. They should be small and easy to reward. Some examples are:

• Trip to the movies
• Ice cream after dinner
• Toy from the store
• Have a friend over for the afternoon

Long term goals will help your child learn to save for something they really want and should be larger in value. Some examples are:

• New gaming system
• New outfit for a party
• New phone
• Tablet or laptop
• Shopping trip
• Vacation
