Don't Spoil Your Kids This Christmas
How to Not Spoil Your Kids This ChristmasThere are many different great ideas, but here are 6 that I think make a difference:1. Buy fewer gifts (meaningful is better than many).2. Have your kids help purchase charitable gifts (they can contribute some money, help with the shopping, and the delivery).3. Focus on family activities more than gifts.4. Set realistic gift expectations for your children. (Just because you can buy it for them doesn’t mean you should. Remember there are birthdays and other gift giving opportunities throughout the year.)5. Rein-in the extended family: one gift per kid is plenty from the grandparents.6. Open one gift at a time. (Savor the experience and model joy in watching others open gifts.) www.theshrinkshow.com
