As we enter a brand new year, encourage your child to use this time to think about the things they would like to accomplish in 2018.

New Year, New Beginning

It may not be the beginning of the school year, but the start of a new year is the perfect time to think about the future. Encourage your child to use this time to decide what they want to accomplish and teach them to make New Year's resolutions that are meaningful. To get them started, use these tips.

Make Resolutions for Home

Your child's resolutions don't have to have a complete academic focus. Positive changes in other parts of their life can have a great impact on their wellbeing and development. Have your child think about the routines they follow daily and what changes they would like to make to these. Maybe they want to get to bed earlier each night so that they don't feel so tired the next morning. They may also consider getting up earlier in the morning so that they can get out the door without feeling rushed. If your child doesn't participate in sports, a great resolution can be to include physical activity into their daily routine at home. They don't have to have tons of resolutions either. They can choose one of these examples and focus on truly making it happen.

School Related Resolutions

Creating New Year's resolutions focused on school can be quite similar to creating school year goals. The difference is that your child's goals may focus on a specific endpoint, like getting an A in a class, whereas a resolution can focus on changing a habit that could hinder them reaching their goal. For example, if your child wants to get an A in a class but is too shy to ask questions in class, a great resolution for them would be to build up the courage to ask questions when they don't understand something. Other examples of school resolutions include paying attention in class, writing down homework in a planner, or taking notes in class.

Focus on Extracurriculars

Extracurricular activities are an important part of a child's development. Not only do they allow your child to express themselves in a creative way, they can also help your child find their passions in life. If your child isn't involved in any, encourage them to make joining an activity a part of their New Year's resolutions. Help them prepare for tryouts for a sport's team or help them find the courage to attend a club meeting for a club they're interested in joining. By joining an activity that interests them they can build up their self-confidence, meet new friends, and get the courage to join other activities they've always been interested in. Your child may need some extra help taking on their resolutions.  Luckily, The Tutoring Center, Franklin Park NJ is here to help.  Give them a call at (732) 419- 3813 to learn more about their tutoring classes.

Help Your Child

To ensure your child makes resolutions that are important to them and that matter, help them create their list of resolutions. Talk to your child about the things they want to accomplish this year and what new things they would like to try. You may be surprised to learn your child has always wanted to be in a school play but has been to shy to even tell anyone. Encourage them to chase their dreams and let them know you'll support them along the way.

Break Bad Habits

While deciding on their resolutions, have your child identify some of their bad habits that they would like to change. Once they have chosen a couple, ask them what they can do to change them. For example, if your child procrastinates on homework, what will make it easier for them to get it done in a more timely manner?

Stay Positive

Finally, always stay positive when talking about resolutions. Avoid nagging your child about sticking to their resolutions and instead ask about their progress. Encourage your child to stick to their resolutions and set a positive example by having your own. Stay accountable and share your struggles as well as your successes with your child so that they see they aren't the only one struggling.
