TEACHING KIDS THE JOY OF GIVING
This year I wanted to teach Lucas that Christmas is about giving, not just receiving. He's got the receiving thing sorted, especially after just having a birthday. I decided it's time to give him a lesson on giving and the joy that brings.
Of course kids learn what they see, so Lucas sees that we give love and gifts to our friends and family, teachers and community. We give, with birthdays, charities and every year we donate gifts to the wishing tree and food to the food banks. Yet it is not him directly giving. This year I thought it would be good for Lucas to do the giving, so he is giving something small to family members.
