Gifts with Wings & Other Helpful Hints for Supporting Children Through the Winter Holidays

“The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self . . . Whatever you really love to do . . . love that in front of children.  That’s going to be a far more important gift than anything you could ever give them wrapped up in a box with ribbons. . . The last thing . . .  you have to be is perfect at it.  It’s the spirit that gives that kind of gift its wings.”   Fred Rogers
