Tip of the Week: Happy New Year

Each year at the end of December, I ask our students for their New Year’s resolutions. I ask them what they would like to do differently or better for the coming year, and their answers never disappoint!

  • I want a girlfriend but one that isn’t so confusing all the time.  – age 17

  • I want to do better in school and learn how to be calmer, but mostly I want a dog.  – age 13

  • I don’t want anything to change. I like everything the way it is.  – age 12

  • I wish I could be nicer to my family.  – age 17

  • I want to cure PWS.  – age 16

  • I’m happy. I don’t want anything different.  – age 11

 Happy New Year!!!!
