A Child Grows: The New Year’s Resolution Trap

It’s that time of year again. The end of the year brings holiday cheer, and with it New Year’s Resolutions. It’s a lovely intention – reflecting on the year before, committing to positive change, turning over a new leaf as the calendar turns. And yet, 92% of people are unable to stick to their New Year goals. My clinical practice tends to get busy towards the end of January as patients become frustrated, defeated, and ashamed by their difficulty following through with their resolutions.
