Making New Year’s resolutions with your family is a great way to nurture everyone’s growth throughout the year. Consider these goals for the next 12 months: • Cut down on activities. If your family is busier than ever, make room for consistent togetherness time. Suggest cutting back on work and extracurricular activities, so everyone can eat dinner together most nights. • Strengthen your children’s confidence. Some parents spend a lot of time pointing out their kids’ weaknesses. Remember that successful people focus on their strengths, and do the same for your kids. You’ll give them the confidence to tackle their weaknesses. • Make personal resolutions a family affair. If you’ve decided that you need to do more charitable work, consider making your personal goal a family goal. Volunteering as a family is a powerful way to build self-esteem and establish a sense of community in yourself and your children.
