Q: On Christmas Eve, our family volunteers at a soup kitchen. My kids complain about it. Do I continue to make them do it?
A: "Why don't you let your kids choose a date once a month when they want to volunteer? You'll teach them that charity isn't a holiday-specific activity. Or ask them how they'd like to extend their generosity during the Christmas season."
