Today we’re talking about New Years resolutions for kids.
It’s like clockwork. As soon as the holidays are over, you can’t find an open treadmill at the gym and it seems that all of your co-workers are suddenly eating salads every day at lunch.
We grownups can get so focused on our own resolutions that we seem to forget that kids get the same sense of accomplishment when they achieve goals that we do!
