The New Year is just around the corner, and many of us are making resolutions to better ourselves and improve our lives. But who says it's just for grownups?

This January have some fun, and set a New Year's resolution with your child. Your children are bound to love ringing in the New Year with their very own resolutions. And there are lots of benefits to your child coming up with their own resolutions: Self-discipline, self-improvement, commitment and the value of making goals and following through.

1. Get the family involved

Sit down together and reflect on the past year and discuss accomplishments and goals.

2. Make them specific

Just resolving to “do better in school” probably won’t work. Set a specific goal.

3. Write them down

Have each family member write down their resolution and post the list somewhere where it can be seen often.

4. Be a role model

Come up with a resolution of your own. If your child sees you stick to your resolution; odds are they will too.

5. Pick a reward

Having something fun to work towards can always be a good incentive. Just be sure you both agree on the reward ahead of time.
