All evidence-­based home visiting models stress the need for family goal­ setting as an important component of their programs. But working with families to set goals is one of the most challenging tasks the home visitor faces according to a DHHS report, “Supporting Evidence ­Based Home Visiting to Prevent Child Maltreatment”.

Goal­ setting with parents needs to be accomplished in a manner that not only protects, but enhances the relationship between the home visitor and the family. A compassionate home visitor will not overwhelm parents used to living day to day who may be challenged by the idea of setting goals. For these stressed parents, goals need to be presented in a manner that recognizes their constraints that may even include basic literacy. If these challenges can be met in a manner that is both fun and empowering, both parents and the home visitors experience a strengthened relationship.
