I recently viewed an info-graphic about the best gifts for teens. After reading it, I immediately thought this is actually true for middle and late childhood, adolescent, and young adult stages of life.
As with each year, the holiday season has snuck up on us and many of us (children and adults alike) are creating holiday wish lists. Many of the items on these lists are tangible things. Things we want but don’t necessarily need. How often do we take time to think about our wants (something you would like to have) and needs (something you have to have)? Which one is useful with respect to activating our creativity, recognizing our originality and increasing one’s confidence and self-esteem? I am convinced that wants are good, but needs are vital for a child, teen or young adult’s behavior to monitor itself.
Here are 8 gifts that can be given on a daily basis. When thinking of a gift for your child, consider these in lieu of the items on their wants list.
Try giving your child these gifts. I am certain they will greatly appreciate it and in turn you
will raise a confident, level-headed, and trustworthy child who will be successful in all
facets of their life!
Have you given any of these gifts to your child?
