I love the idea of making New Year’s Resolutions with my kids. I think it’s a great way to reflect on what they were proud of in the past 12 months and think about what goals they still want to work on for the next year. So this year, as you think about what you want to work on for the next year, try including your kids, no matter what age. Here are some tips to help your kids make valuable goals and work to attain them:
- Make sure the idea is their own
- Make sure it’s realistic
- Make sure it’s manageable
- Help them think of ways to make their resolutions work
- Help them refine it if necessary
- Help them deal with setbacks
New Year’s is the perfect time to connect with your kids and help them to see that life is about being introspective, taking a look at who we are and trying to change for the positive. Making resolutions and working towards them is a way to put that into motion, no matter what their age.
