Do you need to set some family goals for the New Year?
It’s a great time to get together as a family and discuss what’s important. Setting goals are important so that your family can have a common goal to work towards.
My family got together to set some goals so we could have the best year yet.
What about technology and too much screen time for kids?
How can we create more family time?
What about eating healthier in the New Year?

Here is the scoop on 5 Family Goals To Set For The Best Year Yet
1. Limiting Screen Time For Kids
As parents, we all worry about how much screen time our kids are having. We wonder what they are watching and is it educational.
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet and Amazon FreeTime provide peace of mind for parents. I can use the Parental Control settings in FreeTime to set limits, adjust age filters, enable/disable web browser access, and choose whether to allow in-app purchasing.
The Parent Dashboard is a great tool to see what my kids are watching or using in FreeTime.
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet is such an important device in our home because I can manage time limits and educational goals, and remotely adjust their child’s my kids’ FreeTime settings.
The benefits are wonderful. Each one comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, providing access to over 20,000 books, videos, Audible books, educational apps, and games that are age-appropriate and hand-curated by the Amazon FreeTime team.
Kids also have access over 1,000 age-appropriate, Spanish language books, videos, educational apps, games, and Audible books, plus thousands of kid-friendly and hand-curated websites and web videos.

2. Sunday Family Meetings
Last year, we started family meetings on Sundays. They occur either at breakfast or Sunday night dinner depending on what we have going on during the day. This has been instrumental in keeping us all on a schedule or knowing each others schedules when it comes to after school activities, homework and attending local South Florida events.
3. Family Dinners
Having dinner together as a family is so important. It’s amazing what you can find out from your kids by just sitting down together. Don’t put too much pressure on yourselves to make it happen. We try to plan at least once during the week and on Sundays.
4. Cook Healthy Meals
Cooking as a family can
5. Plan A Family Vacation
Making memories is really what life is all about. Telling the stories after a trip is what I love the most.
We can’t wait to travel this year as a family. The kids are so excited to go back to the Florida Keys and feed the giant tarpon.
A cruise is in the future for my husband and me along with our end of the summer get together where 20 friends and family go to Captiva, FL.
Which of these goals will you be setting this year?
