Have you ever heard of a parenting New Year’s resolution? It’s not the first resolution a person usually has- is it? There are plenty of resolutions involving weight, time, and perhaps income. But, I seldom hear of resolutions people want to focus on concerning their children. Today’s post will focus on a couple of things. The first focus is ideas for parental resolutions. The second is the most effective strategy to implement any resolution.

This post is a note of thanks for everyone who has visited, referred others, and commented on my blog this year. I hope you have been able to use the parenting tools I have given you to foster a peaceful and loving home.
St. Josephs Children’s Home in Louisville, KY was the place I learned most of the crucial lessons I talk about in my book (Tantrums, Troubles, and Treasures) and blog. St. Joseph’s serves many people. But, the part I worked in focused on children who had been placed there because their parents had lost their parental rights ( as judged by the courts). My job was to help rehabilitate the children to the point where they could be placed in a loving foster home or better yet; an adoption setting.
