Happy-New-Year-2016-380x254By Robert Becka

Looking for a great way to make (and keep) your New Year’s Resolutions for 2016? Try involving your kids!

Regardless of whether you make the same resolutions, you’re all more likely to keep them if they’re made as a family: your encouragement will help the kids stay on track, and in return they’ll keep you honest. Turn it into a game (complete with small treats as rewards), and you’re even more likely to stick with it!

Need a few ideas?

The American Academy of Pediatrics provides a great list of resolutions for children, separated by age group. Give it a look — we think you’ll find that more than a couple of them (including those for preschoolers) would be great additions to your own list of resolutions.

Naturally, we suggest resolutions such as “I will help out in my community!” It’s not only a great way to teach kids the joys of charitable giving; it’s also a fun way to bond as a family while helping children in need!
