A New Year

It is 2007, and if you are anything like most people, you have made a New Year's Resolution. If your resolution has anything to do with your children-- even better!

Here are some great ideas for New Year's Resolutions for parents:

  • Spend more time with the family
  • Eliminate as much junk food from the home as possible
  • Replace sodas and juices with water
  • Take the family on an outing at least once a month (park, zoo, library, fair, beach)
  • Open a savings account for each child and deposit $25 for the new year
  • Discuss the newspaper together
  • Go see a play together at least once every three months. Exposing your kids to the arts is excellent for their future.

Here are some ideas for New Year's Resolutions for your kids:

  • Make the bed each morning
  • Eat more fruits and veggies
  • Brush teeth and wash face twice a day: morning and night
  • Eliminate soda
  • Read a new book each week and discuss it with mom or dad
  • Make sure to get enough exercise, watch less TV

If you already have a resolution, great! Keep track of the progress in a journal. You can even make your own private journal on the computer. Try to keep at it because a new year calls for a great new change. Try to make your 2007 as positive as possible!

Good Luck!
