Teach the Kids the Joy of Giving

Kids want stuff.
Everybody wants stuff.

Turn wanting
into a learning
opportunity.

Teach kids the beauty
of giving;
the pleasure
of giving
to somebody else.

Fun and joy come
from more
than receiving.

It’s not about the gift.  It is about somebody wanting to please you with a gift.  I always try to give something that I know the recipient would like, but probably would not buy for themselves.
