Parenting Resolutions for the New Year

By December 27, 2012

Follow me on:

You have likely come up with some resolutions for the New Year. Are any related to parenting?

This  year, in addition to popular New Year's resolutions, such as eating healthier, drinking less alcohol, or doing more volunteer work, how about making some parenting resolutions?

Of course, there could be a lot of overlap between your own every day resolutions and more specific parenting resolutions. For example, if you resolve in the New Year to be a good role model for your kids, then you will likely also be resolving to getting rid of any bad habits that you may have, because you understand that children are more likely to smoke, have an unhealthy diet, not wear a bicycle helmet or seat belts, and be overweight, if one or both parents model bad behaviors.

Do you have any ideas for some other parenting resolutions?
