New Year Resolutions for your Child

Setting goals is an integral part of any child’s development. Why is this so….? Because through goal setting, children learn how to make and follow through with commitments. An example of such a commitment would be making a resolution in the New Year. This is something that we all try to do, but would also be great to instill in your child from a young age.

After all the celebrations and festivities have come to an end, have a sit down with your child to take stock of how the last year went. Talk about the memorable (and perhaps the not so memorable!) events and what your child thought of them.

Highlight the areas that could have been better and discuss the steps moving forward. In doing this, you both can come to a list of steps that you both can agree on, which (to the rest of us) would be considered as their resolution for the coming year. In your discussion, agree on steps that are realistic and achievable as well as age-appropriate.

We have put a list together to help you come up with ideas to discuss with your child:

  1. I reduce the number of snacks I eat.
  2. I will include a fruit or veggie with every meal.
  3. I will be open to new foods.
  4. I will go to bed at a reasonable time.
  5. I will get some exercise for at least 30 mins each day.
  6. I will drink fewer sugary drinks and drink more water
  7. I will eat my veggies because I know they’re good for me!
  8. I will make sure I do my homework before anything else after school.
  9. I will take better notes in class.
  10. I will focus more in class and pay less attention to my friends during lessons

Hope you find a few things you both can agree. We may not be able to help you implement many of the ideas in the list but we can definitely help your child improve, excel and lead the pack this term. For more info, call or email us using the details below:
