Are Gifts More Important than the Holiday?
Does your child look forward to the gifts they will receive for the holidays all year long?

Are the gifts the only part of the holiday for which your kids anxiously wait?

This materialistic outlook might be the indication of a growing problem.

So, with the holidays approaching once again, how do you keep kids focused on what is important rather than how many presents they will receive?

Special guest, Dr. Lisa Asta, MD, and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss how to keep your children focused on the truly important part of the holidays: family, friends, loved ones and giving back to the community.
