One of my friends makes a New Year's Resolution as a family every year. I had never thought about this. So this year, I think we will make one as one of our New Year's Eve activities. Does anyone else set family goals for "the new year?"

    My kids and I will be making resolutions this year - mainly to be on time and keep the house neat.

    I would like to. I think it would be fun to hear what the kids suggest for resolutions.

    Yes, but I've learned to keep them simple. Last year my resolutions were to burn more candles and to use hand moisturizer. Suuuper exciting I know- but attainable! And I did all right! :)

    We haven't before but I think we might start since my 4 & 8yos are starting to understand concepts like "get to bed on time" and "use less technology" lol

      Use less technology is basically my every day resolution. So far I have failed to implement it, but maybe this is a good time to try again!

    I usually make resolutions. I feel like it's just a good time to reevaluate where I am at in several different areas in my life and consider what I would like to change or improve in the future.

    I like to pick a simple new activity or practice for us to try each year, usually focused on spending more quality time together. We’ve done things like setting aside 5-10 mins a week for prayer/reflection, or taking more regular walks (or runs!) together. Even if we don’t end up making it a regular habit, it’s always nice to try new things, and the stuff that sticks tends to enhance our family life in a meaningful way.
