Simple Plan rocker PIERRE BOUVIER is promising to be nicer to his mother in 2006 and he's making it his New Year's resolution.

The singer concedes he doesn't dedicate enough time to his mom.

He says, "I have the same one every year - to call my mom more. I tend to forget to call her. So once a week minimum is my resolution.

"She gets sad if I don't, she just wants to talk to me and see what's going on."
