Setting a family intention to bring in the new year

By Leah Persky, Phd & CFLE • Parent Coach and Manager of Professional and Community Education

The new year brings with it the opportunity to renew and reconnect with your goals and intentions. We often think about this on an individual basis, but setting new intentions and goals for your family is often overlooked. Individual resolutions are hard to keep (they often fall by the wayside by the end of January), but if you can get your family on board with a shared goal or resolution, you are more likely to be successful.

If you are thinking of setting an intention to welcome in 2024 and create space for new habits and goals in the new year, I encourage you and your family to work together to create something new. Think about what you want to bring in or need in your life in the coming months and work to make that happen.

Whatever you and your family come up with is perfect! Maybe it is more time outside, less time on devices, more time focused on planning and cooking meals, setting up a weekly family meeting, being more intentional with money, or learning a new skill. Remember that making changes takes time and energy, so whatever intention you set, be sure to revisit it and break it down into manageable steps through regular check-ins. 

If you need help to identify and meet your new goals, please reach out. As a coach, I LOVE to help people identify goals and make realistic action plans to meet their goals. Here is to a happy, healthy, and intentional 2024! For more information on Parent Coaching, email me or click here!
