Chore Coupons Are Loved by Parents

 

PARENTS, IF YOUR CHILD COULD GIVE LOVING GIFTS WITH NO-COST COUPONS, would he do it?

Today’s parenting gift is a set of coupons. Your youngster, of any age, can give them to those he loves. In fact, you could use them too.

Types of gift certificates include work coupons, fun activities, and caring compliments. Simply put, your child can fill his awards for others with helpful chores, games to play together, or a list of loving compliments.

3 Rules for Caring Coupons - Your Child Must:

  1. Be able to do them.
  2. Promise to do them within a time limit.
  3. Give something the receiver would like.

Who Will Receive Your Child’s Gift Awards?

It’s up to your child and here are 5 possibilities:

  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Grandparents
  • Relatives
  • Friends

Brainstorm with Your Child What She Could Give.

TODAY'S PARENTING GIFT CAN IDENTIFY MATERIALISM IN YOUR FAMILY. Because worldliness can cause family distress, you'll find 2 checklists with material problems you may need to  solve.

 

It doesn't matter whether a you are rich, poor, or middle class. Materialism can infect any home. Some homes  are tainted by selfishness, others by envy, and still others by greed.

 

Our first checklist describes 9 ways your child may expect you to supply his long list of wants. He might even be bugging you for more presents than you can afford. Some parents feel overwhelmed and wonder what went wrong.

 

The second checklist offers 7 ways you may be promoting greed in your kids. If you identify a behavior to change and do so, the result may help your child become a happier caring person.

The Positive Side of Gift Giving

Help your child give gifts to others like coupons that promise he will do something nice for the other person. Then help him set a date for keeping his word. He’ll feel good and the receiver will too.

Of course, you still want to surprise your child with meaningful presents. Consider choosing gifts that give your child what’s most special, your presence and your time (from, my friend, Carol Josel). Why? Because having fun together creates a close-knit family bond and beautiful memories.
