Be Good to Others


Q: Be honest: How long does your family usually keep its New Year's Resolutions?

We don't bother making any.

We break them by noon of the first day.

We last a week or two.

A few months at best.

We always keep 'em!

Could your family use a little more kindness? Put a stop to kicking under the dinner table, refusing to share, and forgetting to use the magic words with a refresher on manners. Keep in mind that kids learn how to be kind by watching their parents' actions, so try to compliment your partner and be compassionate during disagreements.

Also, consider being helpful to others through community service. During tough financial times, organizations can really use volunteers to carry out their mission.
