This time of year, especially, I think about the importance of instilling in children the importance of compassion, giving, and what really matters in life. Commercials this time of year are often focused on materialism and buying children every little thing that their hearts desire. Parents often feel pressured into all of the shopping because they want their children to be happy. The happiness of materialism is temporary however. By teaching children to think of the needs and feelings of others, they will have a life-lasting contentment and a sense of purpose as they grow, which will remain with them into adulthood.
So, how can parents instill a heart of compassion and giving in their children?
