I have an assembly to do on Thursday based around the theme of New Years Resolution and the idea of making things better. I teach teenage boys in a residential school. I thought I might ask you to suggest some New Years Resolutions that you would think teenage boys might want to consider and I could read out in assembly!
I think I would focus on developmental positives, rather than negatives, so avoid stop biting your nails or give up sweets.
Do some exercise every day Go to bed 15 minutes early twice a week Try a new food every week Contact a relative other than your immediate family, so aunt, granny etc, each month Say at least one positive thing to a friend every day
