So here, to bring us home for the week, is a New Year’s resolution I urge you to make for 2012.
Write letters to your kids. Get it in writing. Preserve it for posterity.
That’s what this blog is all about. Letterstomykids.org is drawn from journals about my personal family history that I wrote for our kids, Michael and Caroline, over the course of two years. Those journals started as a New Year’s resolution in 2007.
Now, as January 1 nears, I’m calling on all you parents (and grandparents) out there to do the same.
That’s why my home page invites you to “Take The Pledge.” Just click the link and scroll down to the pledge icon. Click again to close the ad there and click once more to answer the question, “Will you pledge to write letters to your kids?” (Presumably your answer will be “yes.”
Voila! Three clicks and you’ll see your voice counted.
P.S. – Take the pledge here: http://letterstomykids.org/pages/take-the-pledge
P.S.S. – Next week five parents will contribute guest “letters” sharing their parental New Year’s resolutions for 2012. And so will I.
