Since we as adults have such a hard time with charity, we sometimes assume that it is too big a principle for children to learn. But as it turns out, kids can sometimes be better at empathy, sensitivity and charity than we are! The Eyres broadcast today's show from Gilbert, AZ. where they are joined by their daughter Shawni Pothier of the popular blog 71toes.com and they discuss how the Christmas season can be a time to help children think about the concept of charity. The big question is how to mix the "getting" of Santa and stockings with the "giving" of Christ and of charity. The Eyres have some ideas, such as separating the two and totally devoting Christmas Eve to the giving of gifts to each other, with all the focus on the giver, and resigning the getting part to Christmas morning. Tying in with their book Teaching Children Charity, today's show will give you lots of insights and ideas about raising more sensitive, other-centered kids.
