Great question.

I think in another time, and definitely another place, education would be a great answer. However, given the current state of our schools, I just don't think it is the best answer. Maybe when we under go massive school reform that will be the best thing we can give our kids. Maybe that is the answer if you can afford the best school, but that makes it about money being the gift.

Sometimes, kids hate school. Usually because they are struggling in some way. And that is in no way the parents fault. Personally, I feel getting all As is entirely overrated. When was the last time you were asked about your grades?

Compassion. Kindness. Empathy. These are things I want to see everyone pass along to children.
