And, we’re coming up to the season of gifts. Yikes! I can’t even believe Christmas is less than 2 months away! How is that even possible?
But, in this season, it’s so easy to give our kids gifts that they really don’t need.
So, I have a suggestion. I have a very simple thought.
There is one gift that I believe every parent should give their kids.
The gift of Inclusion.
Here’s what I mean…
I want to Include my kids.
I want to Include them with my time and my life.
I want them to know they are my life.
I want to model Inclusion to them.
I want them to see me authentically and transparently including others.
I want them to know that it’s of utmost importance to me to reach out and accept others.
I want to teach them how to Include others.
I want to teach them how to Include people that are easy and difficult to include.
I want to teach them to always be looking for ways they can be catalysts for Inclusion.
