Did you know? According to a recent Clay Center survey, six out of 10 parents encourage their kids to adopt New Year’s resolutions. To bring in the new year (and decade!), we’re dedicating our last show of 2019 to strategies on guiding young people towards meaningful and manageable goals. From getting specific about the “how,” to finding that spark in your child, to involving the whole family, Dr. Gene Beresin and Dr. Ellen Braaten talk through different ways of framing goals to set us all up for success in 2020. Plus, they make their own resolutions based on their own advice.

Thank you for joining in this conversation. What resolutions will your family make for 2020, and how do you plan to follow through? We’d love to know! Write to us at contact@mghclaycenter.org.
