The holiday season is fast approaching, with big meals, family get-togethers, bright lights and holiday gifting. As a parent, it’s often difficult to get children past their own wish list, and focused on the “giving” part of the holidays.
Here are a few ideas that you, your children, or the entire family can do to help make the season brighter for others - and teach a lesson or two in the art of doing something good.
Encouraging the entire family to get involved makes for a merrier and brighter season for you, as well as the recipient of your kindness. It just feels good to do good things! Have small children talk about the good feeling they have in their tummies and hearts so they recognize how giving can fulfill them even more than getting!
