New Year's Resolutions: How to Help Kids Achieve Them

Offer an Incentive

Remember that any resolution, no matter how important, is hard to keep without an incentive. That's the reason so many of us have given up the gym and gone back to chocolate by the first week of February! Rather than using material objects as incentives, however, consider other types of rewards, like a sleepover with friends, being able to plan the menu for a special meal, or lessons on how to use the family's camera.
