Amidst all the hullabaloo of celebrating New Year, make sure your child absorbs the real message that New Year means resolving to make the coming year different and better from the past one.
Let him make resolutions on his own: It’ll be easier and more motivating for the child to follow and achieve resolutions he has decided upon himself.
Show him resolutions can be fun: Making new friends, sharing his toys, helping the needy, completing homework daily can be some valuable resolutions.
Help him remember them: Write down the resolutions on a chart and pin it up so that it works as a constant reminder for your child.
Reward him for accomplishing them: Putting a star on the chart or gifting him something as a token of appreciation will motivate your child to be more focused on his resolutions.
Talk about his resolutions with his friends and others: Your child will be encouraged to take responsibility and boost his self-esteem if you share his resolutions and accomplishments with
others. And he’ll look forward to each new year with a new hope and new excitement.
