Encourage your kids to display an appreciative spirit this holiday season with these practical tips from Mad Science. After all, this time of year is about giving rather than receiving!ains the highlight for all children.
Lead by example, show your appreciation with a gesture, such as a thank you note. Even if your child is too young to write a thank you card, the thought will help them to better understand the importance of showing gratitude.
A great way to build a sense of gratefulness in your child is to have them give back to the community. Allow them to donate their time at a local soup kitchen or purchase a gift for a toy drive. This will help them get in the habit of giving back which is rewarding in itself.
Sometimes a simple no followed by an explanation is needed. During the holidays, children sometimes get carried away with their wish lists. Explain to your child the effort involved in affording costly things.
A great way to limit the amount of money spent on gifts is to make them yourself. Help your child bake a batch of cookies to give to their grandparents or make a handmade craft for their aunt and uncle.
