I Promise To...

The beginning of January is the traditional time we pledge to lead healthier, happier, more fulfilling lives in the year ahead. Making New Year’s resolutions helps formalize our personal goals of behavioral change, and hopefully provides the motivation we need to stay on track past February.

But resolutions aren’t just for grownups. Annual goal setting also can be helpful for kids and adolescents who face increasing responsibilities at home, in school and in their community.

To help celebrate the New Year, we asked a few local kids to share their poignant, funny and inspiring resolutions for 2009.

If your child hasn’t made any New Year’s resolutions yet, it’s not too late. Helping children set goals can be a fun and enlightening experience for the whole family. You may be surprised to hear what they have prioritized for 2009!
