New Year’s Resolutions – We have them too

(for lyrics of the song click here)

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘it will be happier’…”  Alfred Tennyson.

Why do adults make New Year’s resolutions?

For most of us the New Year represents an opportunity to start again with a clean slate, to strive for a better version of ourselves, perhaps spurred on by the spirit of the season of ‘good will to all men’.

The festive season offers us respite and a change of scenery from the rigours and stresses of modern life and causes us to reflect on how we might attain a little of that respite throughout the year to come.  The holidays provide time not only to think and reflect but to translate this into action and the act in itself can provide the sense of achievement and satisfaction that comes with setting yourself a new direction. As they say ‘a change is as good as a holiday’.

Making New Year’s resolutions is typically an adult activity, but have you ever considered doing the same with your children?  Maybe that should be your New Year’s resolution!
