As a parent, include one or all of the following in your New Years Resolution:
1. Ask everyday what is going on in your child’s life and then be a good listener.
2. Give more compliments than criticisms – In fact, make the ratio at least 3 to 1.
3. Reward your child at least once a day for a positive thing you noticed.
Resolve to stick to the above New Years Resolution Suggestions for 21 days. After that, studies show you will be in the habit of doing them and they will become automatic.
