The following post is from Jennifer, a lifelong educator:
It’s completely normal for children to be egocentric when they’re born, but they aren’t supposed to stay that way. It’s our job as parents to help them cross the bridge from selfishness to generosity. The gift-giving traditions you embrace at Christmas can help move your kids in a positive direction.
We’ve all watched children who squeal with delight when they open a long-anticipated present. That’s wonderful, as long as getting isn’t the only thing our kids think about.

Every year I intend to give gifts to our delivery drivers, mail lady and trash collectors…and every year it gets pushed to the side in the busyness of the season.
This year, I was determined to make it happen. Between reviews and giveaways and our own online gift shopping, the delivery people have been working extra hard on our behalf — especially considering the location of our home and the fact that they basically have to come all this way just to deliver to us — and I want them to know we appreciate it!
So I snagged a big bag of Ghirardelli chocolate off Amazon and divvied it up into plastic treat bags, and then I made this quick printable to tie to the bags, just to say thank you.
Of course I couldn’t keep the printable to myself, so I deleted our name, recentered the text and saved it as a PDF for you all to use too!
