Resolutions from real kids

Family smiling in front of a New Year's sign

The saying goes "new year, new me" and for many, the beginning of a new year can be the start of changes they want to include in their life. Whether 2024 is a time for re-invention, learning a new skill, striving toward a new goal or knocking a few things off of your bucket list, there is no age limit for creating a New Year's resolution. 

We asked the Patient and Family Advisory Councils at Children’s Mercy Kansas City to share what New Years resolutions their kids had made for 2024, and their answers didn't disappoint.
