It’s that time of year again!
Beginnings. A fresh start. Imaginings. Goals. Intentions.
New year Resolutions.
I want to share with you some ideas for family-centered resolutions that can make a difference. These ideas encourage quality family time, build empathy for fellow community members, and teach kids that they can make a positive impact in another person’s life.
Give away stuff.
Each month as a family, pick a room in the house. Go through it and put aside items you are no longer using, or never did. If you have an area that is going to take some work (like the garage), spread the fun over a couple months. Take pictures of the stuff that is still usable and in good shape and post for FREE on Craigslist or Facebook or something like that. There is likely a person or family that could really use it and would be appreciative. Bonus: your house gets de-cluttered over the year!
For five more ideas go to my guest blog at LaneKids, the parent resource blog of United Way of Lane County.
