We are 4 days into the Advent season, and while there are lots of really good devotionals available to help adults keep the emphasis of the holidays on the coming of Christ, the littles in your family might be a little bit distracted with all of the commercialism of Christmas.
When our two daughters were young, I knew they would be susceptible to focusing on receiving presents. After all, what child isn’t? As a Christian mom, I wanted the following for our girls:
Encourage their natural tendency to be “givers”
Minimize the focus on presents
Stir a genuine interest and curiosity in them about the birth of Jesus
