On Greed and Gratitude: The Mom Hour, Episode 76

How do we handle the holiday “gimmes,” when kids claim to NEED everything on their gift list? What’s the best way to cultivate a practice of gratitude (and does it have to involve a craft?)? How can we include kids in meaningful giving during the holidays – and all year round?

These are big questions and we’re taking them on in Episode 76 of The Mom Hour. Join Meagan and Sarah for a thoughtful, no-judgment conversation on raising kids to be thankful (even when they still REALLY want that toy…).

  1. Love, love, loved this episode! Listened to it before church, where they announced that they are assembling ‘Helping Boxes’ to help the men and women in our town who are often looking for food and money. What a great way to get the kids involved in ‘giving back’ in a way that isn’t focused on buying ‘stuff’. Your episode was soo spot on! Thank you. <3

  2. We do the same with the catalogs! It’s a great activity for my 3 & 5 year old to do while I’m making dinner. I love the idea of rephrasing it from “I want” to “I like”. Thanks!
