Who ever made a new years resolution and stuck to it? Well, just because we adults may not be the greatest resolution-keepers doesn’t mean we shouldn’t encourage our kids to start the year right.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has come up with suggested resolutions for kids depending on their ages. From eating right to minimizing screen time to communicating about problems, the list has something in it for every kid. And parent.

Here’s are a few samples:

Preschoolers

Kids, 5  to 12 years old

Kids, 13 years old and older

The lists for each age group are much longer. You can see the full list here.
