New Year's resolution teach children how to work towards goals. Help your child make smart resolutions with these tips.

As adults, it's easy for us to forget about our January resolutions two months into the new year. Maybe we'll feel slightly guilty for a couple of days, but the feeling soon passes. For children, it's different. Making resolutions and not following through with them can affect their self-esteem and can make them irresponsible. The key to making resolutions and starting the new year strong is to plan them. Here's how you can help your child set some goals for this coming year.

Tips for Setting New Year's Resolutions

Focus on the positive: Instead of letting your child think about their negative areas, help them think about their areas of opportunity. Focus on the positive to help them make their resolutions. For instance, instead of thinking, "Last year I was a real couch potato," think, "This year I'm going to try a new sport." Be a role model: Remember that children learn by example. If you're making some resolutions for yourself, make them easy and reachable. Try to keep a positive attitude and stick to them. Make suggestions, not obligations: Your child might need some inspiration to set their goals. You can help them out by thinking about their strengths and abilities and make suggestions. Just don't force them to do something they don't want. Don't nag: It's easy to forget our goals once some time has passed. You can gently remind or ask your child about their resolutions, but don't nag them. Don't pressure them into taking steps they're not ready for.
