The Number One Gift You Can Give... / by James Leath

is your presence

I don't do Black Friday. I stay home and recover from crazy amounts of food I ate the day before. 

I have nothing to sell, only one ask:

Be present for your child. 

How do you do that?

  • Put down your phone. 
  • Turn off the television. 
  • Go for a walk together. 
  • Ask them to explain their favorite toy.
  • Watch them play. 
  • Look them in the eyes, and delight in them.  

Kids don't need more presents, they need more presence.

Happy Thanksgiving.
