New Years’ Resolutions are fun and exciting to make for adults. What about our kids? What do they wish to change for the better in the coming year? I’m betting they have more realistic goals than most of us adults. Let’s take a look.

1) Learn New Things:3

This is a great one to start off the new year with. My six year old niece loves science experiments. Her favorite is the volcano experiment and she wants to learn how to do that.

2) Improve Education:

Maybe your child is interested in improving their math skills. Or even wanting to learn how to rhyme. There are literally thousands of new education skills that can be learnt.

3) Be Nicer to Siblings:

This one is not usually on top of kids lists but “yay” to the kids who want to improve their relationship with their siblings.

4) Plant a Tree:3

This is one skill I wish more kids could do to help improve mother earth. There’s nothing cuter then seeing our wee ones planting trees.

5) Eat Less Junk:

I couldn’t believe it when I heard a kid say this. The only catch is that they wanted a good pizza every now and again. Hmm, I think we could all benefit from this resolution.

6) Start Exercising:

This is a great one to help get the new year going. It will benefit you and them at the same time!

7) Help Dad Quit Smoking:

Who can say no to a little child asking their parent to quit smoking? It’s healthier for everyone and it shows you respect your child’s wishes.

8) Help Out with Chores More:3

This is one that not every child will have at the top of their list but it is a good one to do.

9) Play Fewer Video Games:

Now this one is awesome! It not only gets your kid away from the video games, it also gives them a chance to develop skills in different areas.

10) Do the Best to Finish My Dinner:

This one is a bit different but it is essential none the less. It gives them a sense of responsibility and it makes them think more.
