We are a few weeks into the new year and some of those New Year resolutions have found traction and are becoming positive habits; others never took hold and have fallen by the wayside. When it comes to our resolve for our children, however, those hopes and dreams do not fall by the wayside.
January is a month of renewal, named after the ancient Roman god Janus, the god with two faces. As VintageNews.com describes him, “Janus was the Roman god of doors, choices, beginnings and endings. The first month of the year is called January after him. He is usually depicted with two faces, one on each side of the head.” In December, when the New Year draws close, many of us reflect on the past year and set our sights on the upcoming one, like Janus looking simultaneously backward and forward.
As part of that reflection and forward looking, Peachjar.com conducted a survey of randomly selected parents across the country asking them about their resolutions and hopes for their children in 2019. https://info.peachjar.com/parent-new-years-infographic-program-providers
