The Positive Side of Gift Giving
Help your child give gifts to others like coupons that promise he will do something nice for the other person. Then help him set a date for keeping his word. He’ll feel good and the receiver will too.
Of course, you still want to surprise your child with meaningful presents. Consider choosing gifts that give your child what’s most special, your presence and your time (from, my friend, Carol Josel). Why? Because having fun together creates a close-knit family bond and beautiful memories.
