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.

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.
