Happy New Year!

At the moment I am busy preparing for our first birthday celebrations so don't have much time to write. But I just thought I would pop in and wish everyone a Happy New Year!

New Year is usually a time of making resolutions, but I resolutely avoid doing this :) I prefer to have "loose" goals so that I have something to work towards or hope for without being distressed if I don't achieve them.

So here are some "loose" goals for Learn to be Buddies this year:

  1. Celebrate our first birthday with a book launch, release of a DVD of our new book and a new, more "mature" logo.
  2. Streamline our blogging by writing a separate blog on bullying, and maintaining the focus of this Learn to be Buddies blog on practical strategies for parents, teachers and others to help children with disabilities with social and behavioural issues. Separate blogs on the specific books will be maintained where possible, keeping you up to date with competitions, reviews and the progress of each new book.
  3. Release our second book, "Why Don't You Share?", in August.
  4. Release a different game, a song, activity plan or other product related to this book each month until the end of the year... when we will start on our next book.
If you have any specific topics you want discussed here, let me know. I will return to blogging after the 16th of January, which is the date of our book launch celebration.

Feel free to drop in, even if you can't stay!

Well how about that Amanda. What a great impact you have made in just one year! Prayers and best wishes to you for the new year. I will look forward to seeing how these loose goals turn out :)
