Little kids (big ones, too, for that matter) love to talk about what they want. Around the holidays, especially, it's expected that your tot's focus will be on the presents she hopes she gets. But try reframing the conversation when it comes to gifts, advises Borba. "Turn the word 'getting' to 'giving' -- instead of saying: 'What do you want to get?' Ask, 'What do you want to give?'" It's a simple switch that will help your kiddo learn to think about others' wants, as well as her own.
