Monday Musings

Christmas is coming! Do you have an Advent Calendar that marks off the days before the holiday? Anticipation is a great part of the joy of celebrating. It’s a great time to help them think about what they are doing for others. A RAK (random act of kindness–a blessing to others) done each day, noted someplace for the child. A place to simply mark each day..all of these things can help them also think of others besides themselves which helps them learn to enjoy the holiday on many levels.

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, make your own waiting calendar for a set number of days before the child’s birthday, a big ethnic or religious holiday of your own. Anticipation–giving to others. Real fun, building blocks of a caring loving adult.
