Holidays on a Budget

Happy holidays! Thought you’d enjoy my latest parenting column for Sesame Workshop’s website, starring my ebullient daughter Olivia, seen here in less snowy weather. The timely topic is Holidays on a Budget (PDF). Among other things, this article reminds moms and dads that the price of a present rarely has an impact on the child’s enjoyment. The cliche about the kid enjoying the box more than the gift inside is often true. Hope you and your family find plenty of low-cost, fun ways to spend time together. See you in 2010.
