Jean Chatzky's Guide to Holiday Giving
Get Your Kids Involved
You may not realize it, but giving is something that kids really enjoy. Did you ever notice how excited they get when they deliver a birthday present to a friend or when they help you celebrate Mother's Day? It's fun for them, as it should be. Get them involved this year by letting them choose a cause that interests them. That way, they'll be more apt to stay with it in the years to come. Then, with your guidance, let them decide how they want to give to that cause. They could give their time by volunteering to, say, pick up trash in a local park, but they could also give a toy that they no longer play with.
