Children pledge to drink tea and play with gerbils
THOMAS Dittmer, nine: "Last year my New Year Resolution was to stop biting my nails. It lasted about two hours. I did try my hardest but it's like a smoker trying to stop smoking, once you start you can't stop.
"This year my resolution is something I'm going to do rather than not do – I'm going to try to drink real tea more.
"At the moment I drink lots of fruit teas, but my dad drinks real tea all the time and he has something called Earl Grey and it smells divine.
"My New Year Resolution for my dad is for him to stop smoking, because I'm worried about him."

Millie Patterson, 10: "Last year I tried not to drink so much coffee because it started to make me jump up and down a lot.
"It didn't last very long, maybe two weeks, because I like it too much.
"This year I want to spend more time with my gerbils because I leave them alone too much.
"My New Year Resolution for my teacher would be for her not to shout so loudly."
Martha Headford, 10: "This year I want to try to do my homework on time. I always leave it until the last minute on the Tuesday and then sometimes I don't get it in on time on the Wednesday and I get told off.
"My New Year's Resolution for my brother who's 12 would be for him to stop going on his X Box so much. He's always on it, he's obsessed with it and won't come out with us because he's just staring at the screen.
"My resolution for my sister, she's 14, would be for her to stop shouting, she gets really annoyed.
"I don't think they would stick to them though."
Violet Howson, six: "This year my resolution would be not to talk so much in class because there are lots of chatty people in it and it's quite noisy. I also don't want to eat so many foods that have sugar in them.
"My resolution for my mum would be for her not to tell me off so much.
"My resolution for the whole world would be for people not to drop litter as it causes pollution and hurts animals."
Freya Barton, six: "Last year I think my resolution was to try harder in PE, I don't think it lasted that long.
"My resolution this year is to get better at swimming because my dad wants me to be good at it so I don't drown. My resolution for my dad would be for him to become a swimming teacher so he could teach me.
"My resolution for other people would be for them to stop saying rude things to each other."
Elliot Hill, eight: "I've been on the computer a lot recently so my resolution is to cut down. My mum lets me go on it but I go on it other times too. She thinks I go on it way too much. I go on it every day for an hour.
"My resolution for my mum would be for her to stop smoking, she smokes literally every day. I want her to stop because if she doesn't her veins will go black."
Julia Strapoc, eight: "Last year I think my resolution was to get better at maths. It lasted six months. I can't remember why it didn't last longer. This year I want to get better at art as I enjoy it.
"My resolution for my mum would be for her to do fun things with me. And I'd get my dad to be more funny. My resolution for the world would be for no animals to be kept in cages."
Daisy Sagar, eight: "My New Year's Resolution last year was to say please and thank you more, I always have to be reminded to say it. It lasted a day because I'm not very polite.
"This year it's not to play on my X Box so much. I play it for five hours a day. I don't think it's too much but my mum does. My resolution for my 15-year-old sister would be for her to stop having her friends round so much as they're scary – they always dress as if it's Halloween.
"For my 10-year-old sister I would get her to stop bossing me around. And for my brother who's 13, I would get him to stop shutting himself in his room because he always stays in his room playing on his phone."
