Sri Lankan children's writing '2021' with firecrackers. | CHAMILA KARUNARATHNE
MANY will be discussing their New Year’s resolutions this weekend, as we enter 2021. It has long been a tradition; some argue going back as many as 5000 years. All the accounts whittle down to one thing – a desire for a ‘better life’ – to live life more fully. But when I research children and New Year resolutions, I am quite frankly disappointed. There is a clear and over emphasis on pleasing parents, teachers or guardians!
