Tis the Season: Show by exampleModel Contentment
It’s important for kids to learn to be happy with what they have. This often means modeling that behavior.
“I have asked God to give me a heart that holds things loosely,” says Cara, a mom from Indiana. “I have to consistently reevaluate how I am doing as a model for my kids.”
Personally, I make an effort to watch my words and my shopping cart. It does little good if I tell my kids to be happy with what they have and then fill my cart with things that catch my eye. Sometimes my own “wants” roll off my tongue without thinking. In the reverse of that, my words of thankfulness are also noted and mimicked. Which is a good thing!
