As we dive into the new year, don't let your child wander it aimlessly. Help them develop some New Year's resolutions that will help them make this year a success.

Make Your Child's Year a Success With the Help of New Year's Resolutions



The start of the new year gives everyone a chance to start fresh with a positive outlook for the year. Because of this, it's also the perfect time to encourage your child to make some positive changes in their life. Introduce them to the idea of New Year's resolutions and teach them about how these can make a positive change in their academics and life overall.

Make Positive Changes at Home

To get your child to start thinking about setting New Year's resolutions, have them think of some things they would like to change at home. Specifically, have them think about some adjustments they can make to their daily routines to make them more effective. For example, your child may benefit from getting to bed on time each night or they may have more energy through the day if they make time to have a healthy and not rushed breakfast every morning.

Focus on Academic Resolutions

If your child has already set academic goals for the school year, help them come up with some resolutions that can make reaching these easier. Ask your child what they may be able to improve on in class. For example, if your child has missing information in their notes because they get distracted by their friends, they can resolve to cut these distractions out. Students who forget what their homework is can work on writing down their homework requirements daily so that they don't have to waste time at home calling friends and trying to remember their assignments.

Try out New Activities

A very popular resolution for people of all ages is to try new things. This is a great option for students who are a bit shy and who hold themselves back from trying out for sports teams or joining clubs they are interested in. Encourage your child join a team or activity they've always wanted to try but have been too scared to attempt. Doing this can open up their world, give them more self-confidence, and can help them make new friends who share their interests.

Confront Struggle Areas

If your child isn't sure what to focus their resolutions on, encourage them to confront the areas in which they struggle. If they often show up at home not knowing how to do their homework, they can benefit from asking questions in class. If your child is shy or scared of being laughed at, remind them that resolutions aren't meant to be easy, they're meant to challenge us and push us to become a better version of ourselves.

Develop Healthy Habits

Resolutions are a great way to break bad habits and replace them with better, more positive habits. Ask your child to identify some of their bad habits that they would like to change. Once they identify these, ask them what good habits can help them do so. Remember that it takes 30 days to develop a habit. Formulate a 30-day plan together that can help your child form a new habit and keep up with their resolution.

Set the Right Example

To help your child stay on top of their resolutions, do your best to set a positive example. Set your own resolutions while asking for input from your family members. Stay accountable and show your child you're doing your best to stay on top of your resolutions. Don't forget to check in on your child's progress and share yours as well. When checking in, do your best to avoid nagging and maintain a positive attitude. If your child is struggling to keep up with their resolutions, share your own struggles with them so that they see it's not easy. Listen to their struggles and do your best to help them find solutions.
