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

5 of 7

Set the Example

Don’t make your kid feel like she’s the only one who has a challenge on her plate. Talk about your own New Year’s resolutions with the entire family, and periodically show your kid how you’re doing. Your actions say much more to your child than your words do, so she’ll pick up on whether you stick with your resolution or if you let it fizzle out.
