Regularly express your caring—verbally and nonverbally—to your children.
Plan a simple, family service event for Thanksgiving weekend. Volunteer with your child at a nearby animal shelter, nursing home, or community center.
Discuss with your kids the importance of traditions and why certain customs are important to pass down through the generations. The trick, however, is to balance meaningful traditions and new activities.
Get the family together and have an “I’m grateful for” brainstorming session. Try to list as many things as you can think of that you’re grateful for. Creating a list often reminds us of how much we take for granted.

Try getting kids and adults to interact more this Thanksgiving. Consider creating a different seating arrangement at your holiday table. Place a child from a different family between a different adult.
