New Years Resolutions For Kids

New years is the time of year to start anew. You know to change something you do or think to better yourself. I hope your resolution is to do good deeds. We have a list of 100 things you can do for free to help others.  It is important to have new years resolutions for kids. They should also have a chance to strive for improvement. This is a great time for you to mentor and empower your child or children.

When you write a goal it needs to be actionable and measurable. If you say I am going to lose weight you need to say by eating more salads and walking 4 days a week. If your child says I am going to keep my room clean. Then write out what that means. A clean room doesn’t have toys on the floor and clothes piled in the corner. We created a free-printable-kids-2014-new-years-resolution-ideas so you can print it and fill it out. Then I would hang it somewhere for reference. I would also pair a reward with it. If you keep your room clean 5 out of 7 days you can earn a new book or a special day out.

  1. Thank u so much for this post. My son was trying to come up with some ideas for a resolution and this really helped. He decided to be nice to his siblings by letting them play with his toys. Its something he struggles with so I hope this helps.

  2. Thanks for the ideas, I might use them with the kiddos at work when we work on goal setting and talk about New Years Resolutions.

  3. Clean room. Having her own bed, now she is responsible for making her bed everyday. In addition, she is starting to learn to wash her own clothes 🙂

  4. My son is going to try more new foods. Considering he only eats about 6 things hopefully we will find some new things that don’t make him turn green and gag….lol

  5. This gives me good ideas for the future. My son is 2 and I’ve started having him clean up his breakfast mess by himself (throwing away left over crust, putting yogurt spoon in the sink, etc.) and he has caught on quickly. I still have to remind him most morning but he normally does it without whining or fussing 🙂

  6. My daughter made a picture book with a story that my grandfather told her before he past. It is a treasured item to the children that never knew him. She now writes them for other stories the aunts and uncles tell. It is an afternoon or weekend of together time.

  7. These are some awesome ideas! I like the helping organize a donation drive. I think getting your kids to donate early will not only help keep their rooms clutter-free and closets organized, but also help those in need!

  8. My Grandson’s three and five, Need to learn more manners.. These are great. Thank you and the rest of the posters.
    They really need to try new foods. 🙂

  9. I agree that getting our children to Write a Letter or Donate is a great thing. We sponsor a needy child and I teach my 9 yr old to correspond with him.

  10. Now this awesome. never would think of this. New year’s resolution for kids. I love every single one of the ideas. I am gonna print and let them check off a couple they would like to do. Never to late for New Yeas Resolution. Maybe even put some of them for myself!
