Happy presents! Uh, we mean, Holidays! Let’s be real: gifts are a huge part of what makes this season so magical for children and that’s just not going to go away. So, how do we teach a child about giving gifts and not just getting them? How do we teach generosity and not just consumption? Gratitude, not just privilege? These are clearly important lessons for kids to learn, as they will form the foundation of how they view and relate to the world, possessions, and privilege. And this holiday season is a great time to build that emotional infrastructure.
