I’m a big believer in New Year’s resolutions.  Regardless of how many times I fail, I know I’ll be back next December 31 with new ones.  Willingness to evolve, even in the face if repeated setbacks, is very important to me.  I tend to structure my new year’s resolutions so that I get partial credit.  They are my resolutions, after all.

Re-set long term goals by January 15

Focus on skills that will help me play with others.

Focus on really getting to know what makes my kids tick.  Know when to withhold judgment, and when to let them know they could be wandering off course.
