The First Days

Embark on a Family Generosity Project, which represents the opposite of greed and reinforces more positive values that emphasize alternative ways to achieve true happiness. For example, make it a goal to give away 5 percent, 10 percent, or as much as you can of everything in your house: clothing, books, toys, tools, DVDs, CDs, and other expendable objects. Have your kids pack everything up in boxes and help you deliver them to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, Catholic Charities, or another favorite local charity.Their participation will be a big part of learning that it really is better to give than to receive.
