I just watched Wonder again with my kids, and Mr. Browne’s Precepts got us talking about 2018. Which got us started talking about the things we have to look forward to in 2019. And then, the conversation moved along to New Year’s resolutions. Many ideas were thrown around, and we each ended up writing at least one resolution down for 2019.
For the first time ever, my kids were actually excited to talk about New Year’s resolutions. Probably because I didn’t call them New Year’s resolutions. For help making your own New Year’s resolutions as a family, here are some great resources:

- How Kids With Learning and Attention Issues Can Set and Stick to New Year’s Goals
- Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions to Make with Your Family
As a family, our goal is to continue spending more time being active (and outside when possible) and less time on screens. For my husband and me, that means setting a good example for the kids, sometimes easier said than done.
We’d love to hear your family’s goals for 2019, be sure to share in the comments below. To all of our readers: We wish you and your family a very happy New Year’s and a wonderful year ahead!
