3 New Year's Resolutions for Students

Parkside students on the playground and graphic with text "Happy New Year!" The New Year is a time for reflection-- both on the year coming to an end and the year ahead. Creating New Year's resolutions is a great learning opportunity for our students. Here are three questions you can ask your child of any age as they map out their goals for 2017. 
 
1
What do you want to learn this year? Maybe you want to learn more about reptiles or how to speak a new language. Other ideas are learning how to read, multiply numbers, or program a computer.
 
2
What is something you want to do better this year? Here are a couple of ideas: do a better job helping around the house, improve my attendance at school, stop negative self-talk, improve my reading, and eat healthier snacks. 
 
3
What do you want to accomplish? Perhaps you want to learn how to ride a bike, drive a car, make a sports team, get accepted into college, memorize the alphabet, get an A in biology, or read every day. 
 
Help your child select New Year's resolutions they will be excited to keep, and don't forget to help them create a plan to reach their goals.
