Preparing for the New Year

family
I want to share this Smart Start tips from www.nestle-cereals.com.  I used to receive an e- newsletter from Nestle. 

Christmas is also the perfect time to look back at the past year and see how your children have transformed since then. Though regrets and troubles may easily invade their thoughts, parents can help remind them of the importance of loving and hoping. This way, they can turn any disappointment into opportunities and possibilities to better themselves.You may want to help them list down resolutions for the New Year.

Changes they wish to take on with their personality, the relationships they have with others, their daily routine, and improvements toward living healthier are among the many things they can include in their list. They can also list down and celebrate the accomplishments they’ve achieved in the past months, no matter how big or small. This way they can repeat and even outdo such successes. Here are some questions you can ask your kids to help them fill up their list!

  1.  What were the highlights of my year?
  2.  What could I have done to make them better?
  3.  What do I want to achieve next year?
  4.  What is the first step I will do so that I move towards my goals?

It’s really fascinating how the end of each year can also bring about a beginning of sorts. After all, looking forward to the future does matter. Various possibilities await so now is the perfect time to inspire your kids for the upcoming New Year. What better time to spread love and joy to others? What better time to love ourselves more? What better time to begin transforming ourselves into something better? Through your help, you can truly make December the best time for your children to make a Smart Start.

My Grown Up Christmas List

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies
Well I’m all grown up now
Can you still help somehow?
I’m not a child but my heart still can dream
So here’s my lifeful wish
My grown up Christmas List
Not for myself
But for a world in need
No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
And every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up Christmas List
Why does this illusion call the innocence of you?
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth
Not for myself
But for a world in need
No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up Christmas List
This is my only life long wish
This is my grown up Christmas List
