For many of us, this is the start of the holiday season, and it is also a time when lots of parents, kids and friends like to give something extra to others. We may not always have a lot of money, but there are ways we can give to others.

Here is a list of ways you can help Mom and Dad at home and make them feel special:

  • Make coffee
  • Clean up
  • Baby-sit
  • Help with the laundry
  • Draw a picture
  • Sing a song 
  • Make their bed
  • Take care of the pets
  • Clean the windshields on their cars before they go to work
  • Argue a little less
  • Give them a thank-you card!
