Creating a Character Calendar

Posted on 01-13-2015 | Kids R Kids Learning Academies of West Frisco & Legacy West

Creating New Year’s Resolutions with your toddler or preschooler may seem like a waste of time. Yet it’s never to early to start teaching your child about the benefits of hard work and the joys of helping others.

As you enter into the New Year, now is the perfect time to begin practicing habits or routines with your child that inspire good character and healthy practices. Don’t feel pressured to set a lot of goals and try to make them reasonable and achievable. Your young child will need help meeting these goals, which means you should also factor in how much time and energy you will be able to contribute to the task.

To make the process more manageable, break down your New Year Resolutions by month. For example, one month you can focus on saving your money to buy a gift for someone else, another month you can teach the value of respecting your elders by bringing cookies to a nursing home etc. Each month focus on a character trait that you can help model and instill in each of your children. This gives you the flexibility to focus on one goal at a time and only one goal per month! Encourage your child’s involvement by having them decorate the family calendar and display it in your kitchen or dining room so that everyone can remember the focus for each month.
