I've been working on my own list of resolutions (greener living, better eating habits, managing my money more wisely) and it got me to thinking about encouraging my children to make new year's resolutions too. Do any of you make resolutions as a family or do it as a family activity? I'm wondering how effective it might be to bring my children into the circle of my own resolution-making, thinking it might not only keep me accountable but alos help them learn to examine their lives and make commitments to improve and make positive changes.
Anyone tried this with their children? I'd love to hear if it has been beneficial and, if you don't mind sharing, what sort of resolutions you decided on and were able to commit to.
In case you're interested, I posted another thread about sticking to what you resolve, taking a look at a 2012 community thread about new years resolutions: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1340333/new-years-resolutions/0_100
