It’s a new year and with it comes the chance to start fresh … a clean slate … determined to do something new. By the time January 1 rolled around, it’s easy to say just about everyone was ready to see the end of 2020.
Making the year better for you and your children begins with planning, but it’s staying with the plan that determines the success. Each January roughly 65% of Americans claim to make New Year’s resolutions, including the ever-popular ones – work out more, eat better, lose weight and save more – spend less.
While most resolutions fall apart in a matter of weeks, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make them or that you shouldn’t talk to your kids about making them. After all, this is their chance to turn the page, set some goals or start fresh as well, right? At BusyKid, we love how resolutions challenge people to be better and provide parents an opportunity to have a conversation with their kids on topics that may never come up.
If you still haven’t had the chance yet, sit down with your kids and make a short list of goals for 2021. Make the goals age appropriate, not super easy to achieve (but achievable) and visible to see. Here are some suggestions:
BusyKid is the only app where kids can earn, save, share, spend and invest real allowance. It helps teach kids important money management skills they won’t learn in school but need to be successful in life. For more information, go to www.busykid.com or download the free app.
