Teaching kids to be gracious receivers

What do your kids do when they open their Christmas gifts and find:

  • A duplicate of something they already have.
  • The gift is something they truly don’t like. (Your 14-year-old receives a brown and purple sweater dotted with green squirrels.)
  • The gift is for the wrong age. (Your 12-year-old gets a preschool coloring book.)
  • The gift is inappropriate. (You might not like your child having toys or apparel promoting a certain TV or cartoon character, but Aunt Jane doesn’t know that.)

Modern Day Joseph, a web site of the children’s ministry AWANA, has a great article with practical tips on how to encourage our kids to be gracious when they receive gifts.
