Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
New Year Resolutions for parents can be fun and empowering! Read these sweet, funny new year resolutions and share your own too.
“Everybody knows how to raise children, except the people who have them,” goes a quote by American writer P.J.O’Rourke.
Funny as that may sound, it is true that most people have a pet theory about raising children – just until the child comes along, and every theory flies out of the nearest window.
If parenting is one of the most rewarding activities that any human being will undertake in this lifetime, it surely qualifies as one of the hardest too.
It is no wonder that most parents beat themselves up at some time or the other – for not being kind enough, attentive enough, rich enough, patient enough, tough enough, soft enough…We certainly don’t need more parents telling themselves they didn’t do a good enough job.
Yet, New Year Resolutions, when thoughtfully made, can be a powerful force for positive change; by channeling our energies into one or two things, we can boost our chances of achieving something, as opposed to feeling miserable about the hundred things we failed to do.
With that in mind, we asked parents who follow Women’s Web on Twitter, to share with us their #NewYearsResolution as a parent.
Here are some of the very interesting resolutions that parents shared.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
