New Year’s resolutions aren’t just for adults, they’re for kids too! If you’d like to make some positive changes in your life, or if you are a parent who would like to encourage their children to make positive changes in their life, making resolutions for 2015 is a great place to start! While an adult’s New Year’s resolution list may include things like quitting smoking and losing weight, a child’s resolutions can be to work harder at school and help out more at home!

Check out these totally terrific New Year’s resolutions made for kids!

I Will Not Partake In Bullying. If you see someone being bullied do not encourage the bullies or watch along with everyone else. Tell the bullies to stop or go and inform an adult of what’s going on.

I Will Learn Something New. Learning is fun and learning something new is a great way to build up skills and meet new friends with similar interests and hobbies. There are tons of things you can learn! Enroll in piano lessons, go out for a sport, or take a foreign language class at your local library!

I Will Brush My Teeth Twice A Day. Dental hygiene is important! Take care of your teeth by making sure you brush them at least 2 times a day, once when you wake up and once before bed.

I Will Clean Up & Put My Toys Away. This upcoming year make a resolution to clean up after yourself more and give mom and dad a much deserved break.

I Will Adopt A Greener Lifestyle. Instead of leaving the TV on when you’re not watching or leaving lights on all over the house, turn things off or unplug them when you’re not using them. You’ll help your parents save on the electric bills and help the environment.

I Will Eat More Fruits & Vegetables. You only get one body so it’s your job to take care of it! Make sure you nourish your body and get the important vitamins and nutrients available in fruits and vegetables.

I Will Help Out In My Community. Lending a hand and volunteering in the community or through a charity is a great way to give back and help others who are struggling. Make a point this year to sacrifice some of your time to make another’s life that much brighter.

I Will Start Saving Money. Start building up a savings by putting away money in a special spot or by asking mom or dad to take you to go open up a savings account at a nearby bank.

I Will Make Time For Homework. Homework can be a drag but it’s important to do it and make time for it because not doing it will affect your grades, how well you retain the information you learned that day, and get you in trouble if you do not complete it.

I Will Show Those I Love Appreciation. Whether it’s a quick please and thank you to mom and dad, or giving Grandma a call on the telephone more often, find ways to show those that you love that you care and appreciate them.
