Ok, at this time of night I need to be clear what the diff is between 'purpose' and 'objective'
Plus I need a better way of saying "objective: to get the person to do xyz" Xyz is stuff like, maintain their yard for fire season, remove their unregistered vehicle from the street . Basically, take responsibility for it themselves so that we don't have to use enforcement orders.
Vaguely streaming here... would depend on context though? I'm thinking in some situations they are used interchangeably, where in others, you would say someone 'has a purpose' meaning like a goal in mind, versus someone who 'has an objective' which sounds a little like there is something more specific and smaller scale being taked about. As for the above - could you use 'Aim'?
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances.

But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
