New Year's Resolutions to Make with Your Kids
By making your New Year's resolutions with your kids for 2011, you'll be more likely to follow-through. And, it's an easy opportunity to grow closer to your children. Here are five resolutions to make with your kids:
Be Active. Make a pact with your kids to get regular exercise. Whether you institute an evening family walk or play a favorite sport together, resolve to get active.
Learn Something New. Picking up a new hobby or activity with your kids is an easy way to bond and to understand their personalities better. To make sure they're engaged, let your kids choose the activity you learn.
Save More Money. As soon as your children start to earn an allowance, this is a lesson they can learn. Save money with your kids in 2011 and talk to them about the importance of sound money management.
Put First Things First. This resolution works well with school-aged kids or teens who have a lot of homework. Resolve to prioritize well with your kids, so that you put important tasks first, and they focus on making schoolwork their priority.
Be Organized. Make it a resolution to keep your life organized and your kids can join in by resolving to keep their rooms clean...or to stop losing permission slips and important school items.
Whatever you resolve, involve your family and use this opportunity to teach your kids some important lessons as you plan for the year ahead.
