With the holiday season quickly approaching, children are inundated with advertising and talk of toys and gifts, creating a seemingly endless stream of “I want’s.” It’s easy for children to forget about all the things, both material and immaterial, that they already have in their lives. According to Empowerment Expert Jen Groover, it’s important to teach children to express gratitude at a young age, as gratitude is a powerful emotion that will help them find peace in trying times as they get older. Gratitude also teaches kids resiliency, which is one of the key components needed for success and happiness. Your viewers can help their kids appreciate all that they have with Jen Groover’s 5 Ways to Give Your Kid an Attitude of Gratitude:

I am of the firm conviction that there is nothing better than Italian in New York City. From homestyle to “alto Italiano” (high-class Italian) there is much to choose from in our fair metropolis.  And now with the opening of East 12th Osteria there is an option that is as delicious as eating in the land of La Docle Vita. With smart, sensuous and smallish options – chef Roberto Deiaco has created a menu that is a delight to both the eyes and the palate.

It snuck up on us again this year, and somehow we were all surprised. Winter...the holidays. It’s time to embrace it, but you don’t have to turn your space into a winter wonderland. A few new accessories will ease us into the seasonal change. Shop online or in these local stores for cozy, (somewhat) Christmas-y, but ever-stylish pieces. The best part? You can enjoy each one of these items from the comfort of your sofa!
