Halloween -- Lessons for Our Children
By Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin, MD, FAAP, MOM
Halloween provides a great opportunity to teach our children about sharing.
I like to take my children trick-or-treating so they can see the generosity of others. I always ask them to say, "thank you" to teach them appreciation for what they have received. Finally, after we come home from a brief period of trick-or-treating, I ask them to help hand out treats to trick-or-treaters so they can experience the joy of sharing.
