5 Tips to help kids make New Years Resolutions

  1. Discuss their decisions with them and remind them daily. Try to lead them to make New Year’s Resolutions that will make them feel proud and accomplished.
  2. Try to keep children away from vain and unhealthy resolutions by altering the way they perceive the goal. If your son or daughter states that he or she wants to lose weight, redirect them to making the decision to eat healthier.
  3. Encourage them to spend time helping others. Have older siblings make resolutions that involve younger siblings. Be sure that their goals are realistic. A great idea would be to have older children make resolutions to read to younger brothers or sisters 3 times a week.

  5. Track progress. Help your child track their progress. You can even share the experience by allowing them to help you track your own progress


By leading your children in the right direction you will be working towards making your life as a parent slightly easier. These traditions could life your family a lifetime and help you mold your children to become responsible young adults.  Your decision to help kids make New Years Resolutions can become a family tradition.
