Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for Kids
1. TV Time: I will limit time in front of the TV and will try to spend less time playing video games. Instead, I’ll spend more time outdoors playing with my siblings and/or friends.
2. Safety First: I will always wear a helmet when I ride my bike, and will wear my seatbelt in the car.
3. Be Kind: I will be kind to all kids that I meet, as well as treat my sibling(s) with respect.
4. Homework & Study Success: I will do the best I can in school.
5. Stay Organized: I will keep my room clean and my bed made.
6. Chores: I will help out around the house, dusting, vacuuming, and setting and cleaning off the table. Check out age appropriate chores here: http://blogs.parenthood.com/bostonparentspaper/?p=74
7. Share: I will share my toys with my siblings.
8. Listen: I will listen to my Mom, Dad or caregiver.
9. Keep Things Private: I will not give out personal information to people I do not know. I’ll also earn my friends’ trust by not gossiping about their secrets.
10. Be Healthy: I will drink milk and water and will try to limit my soda and sugar drinks. I’ll also limit the amount of candy I consume and replace it with healthy snacks like veggie sticks and hummus.
