Christmas Is About Giving

Lauren wants to know how to raise her daughter to know that Christmas gifts are not free-for-alls.

QUESTION: Lauren wants to know how to raise her daughter to know that Christmas gifts are not free-for-alls.

ANSWER:As soon as she’s old enough, begin to discuss what Christmas is about, and it’s not about her being a consumer of every item at Toys ‘R Them. Christmas is a spiritual holiday. First and foremost, it’s celebrating the birth of Christ. That’s really what we need to talk about a lot. Christmas is about giving, not receiving.
