If I may speak for some of the children I’ve come to know, we can skip the video games, scooters and skateboards. The gift most children really want is parents who treat them with kindness and respect. Congruously, parents say they want the same from their kids. What most parents don’t realize is that the only way children can emulate kindness and respect is if they are treated with those same qualities. Remember the Golden Rule? It applies to all humans, not just grown ups.
