While some New Year's resolutions may include exercising more or eating healthier, a TV watchdog has its own list for families with children.
Parents Television Council suggests making some "media resolutions" for 2016.
PTC spokeswoman Melissa Henson tells OneNewsNow the first suggestion is for parents to be aware what their children are watching, and the best way is to be next to them.
"It's very hard to keep tabs of what kinds of messages your kids are exposed to," says Henson, "if they're off in a different room on their phone, on their computer, or watching TV alone in their room."
Another suggested "resolution" is to go on a "media-free" diet and replace TV time with a family game night. And the cell phones stay off, too.
Other suggestions from PTC and Henson during the new year are for parents to watch and support family-friendly programming and speak out about questionable and obscene programs.
