We often enter a change with enthusiasm and great commitment. And kids are the same. They get easily excited about starting new projects.
But we all know that after the first week, the initial gusto to change habits can die down a bit. We can help children understand the patience an time it takes to change habits by setting positive expectations.
Try to have mini goals for the whole family, so they can see the small steps they have made as they work towards change. This will help everyone in the family keep up their enthusiasm to accomplish their goals and move toward healthier habits.
Healthy habits take time to become a part of a normal routine. If you encourage kids and keep it fun, they are more likely to wantto stick with the goal.
Happy Health Goals!
