Advent: Valuing the Valuable

no comments

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.

Here are the 5 OPL Advent posts with the printables you will need to celebrate this year with your family:
