I write mine down in my diary (2013′s is red, leather-bound and small enough to carry in my handbag at all times) so I can remind myself what I want to achieve whenever I want.
I wrote about resolutions in my blog recently too, and it turned out one of my friends, who lives 2,000 miles away, shares 2 of them. That made me smile :)
Olive’s resolutions are indeed very cute, would your other children let you publish them? I wouldn’t have let my mum see them when I was little, ha!

What a great idea. I love resolutions, too! My whole blog is based on making a resolution a month, then continuing that resolution as I make new ones (as inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project). It has been a wonderful experience.

My husband is a determined “resolutioner” and it is not my favorite, so when it’s time to help 6 kids with goals I’m less than chipper. However your prompts are excellent and I can see them helping the kids really think. I also love the journal idea!

We did it with our kids last night after seeing it yesterday! So much fun! I loved hearing what they wanted to be better at and where they hoped to go!

Thanks!

I did a poor job of explaining goals and resolutions, but I think this will be the perfect way to guide them. Thank for sharing!

But I still recall joking my mother years ago that she had a list for a list for a list. Example…taped to the hanging kitchen lamp shade, “See: list on desk.” HAHA memories…I doubt she was that bad, but when I visit (often) I still see a little pad with a list of some sort every time!

I do not ever do resolutions, because I think I’m afraid of failure…pressure! But then I get angry at myself because studies show goal-oriented people succeed more in life LOL!

This year I suggested at New Year’s breakfast I suggested that we give each other ones! I said “suggestions.” It was very eye-opening but mild and compassionate as we were all worded so well. My husband, (adult) son and I each gave each other one!!! I thought I knew for sure what was coming and they each said the same, surprising one to me…interesting! Who knew!
So far I think we’ve all been keeping them in back of the mind and doing pretty well.

Luck to all in accomplishing (or not as Gabby tells it)!!! ♥

I can’t wait for the kids to get home from school and fill their out. Thank you for starting us on a new tradition. (Yes, me, too — I’m a big list maker and prefer to use them as a general navigational map but, admire those who literally check very specific things of number by number) Happy New Year!

I think that concrete goals are much more accessible than abstract ideas like “exercise more.” I like that list you made because it allows you to create a concrete goal that then allows you to focus more on the means of making it happen than having a goal in the first place.

We do it with our kids in January as well, but I really like the idea of keeping them in a special family journal. Thanks again for a good idea.
