Psychotherapist Mary Jo Rapini shares five suggestions that will be impactful and memorable for you and your children for years to come.
Veterans Day is a great time to educate your children about the history of the holiday and the numerous sacrifices U.S veterans made for our freedom. Honoring the holiday with your family will make it more meaningful and leave your children with lasting memories of the day’s significance. These memories will live on in their adulthood and the way they honor veterans throughout their life. Below are five suggestions that will be impactful and memorable for you and your children for years to come.
1. Ask your child’s teacher to invite a veteran to their classroom. Having a veteran discuss what it’s like serving in the military and what Veterans Day means to them will help young children understand what Veterans Day is about.
