Advent begins this Sunday, and it presents a great opportunity to purposefully guide your children.
As a parent I am teaching my children what to value. By showing them what I think is important, it helps them to decide what they think is important. If I never show them then they will have a hard time knowing! By spending a little time each day for the next month I can emphasize for them what is really valuable. It is the real meaning of Christmas.
