New Years Eve.
Drinking, dancing, staying up till midnight, concerts, street parties, drunkeness, police presence …. Hmmmmm maybe not yet for our children. But these are the images we see around New Years Eve.
What do you want your children to experience on this day?
What do you want hem to remember about New Years Eve?
Is it the day you all go to the beach? Is it the day you all go and visit Granny? Is it a day you do a family walk? Or sit around and watch old movies and feel good about being together?
New Years Eve is a big deal to teenagers, and young adults, it’s a big deal to us sometimes as parents to stay up till midnight to see the clock tick over to the new year, but how can we make it a big deal to our kids?
This is a new time, a fresh start is coming, we should finish the year off with a memory that we can keep for years to come and reminisce about.
Mine will probably include a bush walk and a picnic, before a swim in the lake.
What could you do with your family?
Happy New Years Eve and Happy Birthday to my sister! XX!
