In this episode we talk about why we tell our kids we are going to donate their toys to kids who don’t have any, or who don’t have a lot and the twisted up message that unintentionally sends.
I am not saying to NOT be generous, or giving or teaching to help improve and give value to other people’s lives but to be mindful about practicing what we preach and making sure that what we say and teach, aligns with what we are actually doing.
