I am not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions. Mostly because I have set the bar too high in the past and have failed to achieve my lofty goals. But as we begin 2011, let's try to make a simple commitment: to point our children to a healthier lifestyle this year.

For better or for worse, we are the role models for our children. Whether we are parents, aunts and uncles, neighbors, teachers, or youth coaches, kids watch what we do.

As Christmas season approaches, let me say thanks to all the parents who read this column -- thanks for your feedback, thanks for your stories and thanks for sharing your love of sports with others.

I try to write this column from a perspective of someone going through the same types of experiences as you are going through, and hearing from you helps me stay on top of things.
