New Years Resolutions for Kids

Updated: Jan 19

Resolutions to stop doing something or make an obligation to do something are great for adults, and maybe sometimes for kids. But for 2021, let's have the kids do something positive and fun. I propose allowing kids to choose something they want TO LEARN this year. I suggest picking a skill that is not taught in school. Or something they are ready to be taught earlier than their classmates.


I put two lists together of some ideas that span across ages. (See below) Once the kids pick one or more things they want to focus on, parents can help by brainstorming ways to facilitate the learning process. One great way to start is to pick a book on the subject. Valentine's Day and Easter are coming up. Books are great gifts. You can also watch you tube videos on the subject, join a relevant zoom class or maybe even do weekly lessons. Consider their learning goal when planning family outings. For example, if your child decided this is the year of dinosaurs, plan a trip tip to a museum when covid restrictions are lifted. And of course, learning aids (like dinosaur toys or a clock designed to teach kids how to tell time) can be great birthday presents too! You might even have found a theme for their next party🥳
