It looks like you're not the only one making New Year's resolutions this year.  According to Everloop.com, a monitored social networking site for kids 13 and under, about 20 percent of kids said their New Year's resolution was to get good grades in school.

And that's not all: The site collected resolutions from 22,000 children and all of the data revealed that kids are focused on bettering themselves in 2013. 

Here are some resolutions kids are making for the New Year:
