Giving gifts is such a fun part of the holidays! Gifts, of course, come
in all shapes and sizes, some big, some small, some expensive, and some
that might cost only pennies to make.
Regardless of the cost, most people agree that it’s the thought behind
the giving that means the most. Since our “giving identities”
are formed during the childhood and teen years, parents can help children
and teens realize the internal rewards of giving by modeling mindful giving
during the holiday season.
This article has some great advice on modeling mindful giving, and teaching your children
the true rewards of gift giving. I hope you enjoy it and learn something
that helps you with your parenting!
