Naughty or Nice? Here's How to Teach Kids About Goodness This Holiday Season! by Pepi Silverman
Whether it’s "Elf on the Shelf" or Santa's naughty or nice lists, as we enjoy the holidays, kids benefit from learning what it truly means to be "good." Feelings are very abstract concepts, and children learn more effectively by doing, so create opportunities for kids to be engaged in activities that educate them about goodness. Here's how to help children practice acts of goodness:
- Teach forgiveness.
- Show acceptance.
- Demonstrate honor.
- Give of your heart.
By creating opportunities to demonstrate goodness, kids will learn how to truly be good and that will ultimately be the best gift for the holidays.
