you can give your kids a choice of one thing they want
on their list and let them know in advance they can
have only that one thing they really want on their
list. Have them make the list of 4 or 5 things and
have them decide.Make certain that you talk to your
kids about the true meaning of christmas. You may
want to take them to church on Christmas. That always
brings the meaning of the holiday back home. Discuss
with them their feelings about the church service.
Sometimes if you turn the tone around, and it takes a
bit of reinforcement, it may work. I agree that
Christmas gift giving has really gotten out of hand.
