Around the holidays, it is easy for us to get caught up in the busyness of the season, focused on what needs to get done and what we hope to receive when the holidays finally arrive.  How much easier is it for our kids to do the same?

What are the values you want to teach your kids that will help them become the best version of themselves?  Sometimes I think we spend too much time focused on parenting syles, the "HOW" of our parenting interactions, and not enough on the values we are instilling into our kids - the "WHAT" and "WHY" of parenting.
