Below is an example of a Proposition: Instead of surprising your child with an expensive, large present every month, or causing them to be bored, surprise them once in a while with something small and fun. Two of my children, aged 7 and 5, are mine. In love it when something arrives in the mail that aren’t bills, replacement chargers from Amazon, or Garnet Hill catalogs.
An ongoing supply chain crisis could make holiday shopping more difficult (or even prohibitive) than usual. Subscription boxes can be useful supplements for remote learning and come in handy if you can’t send your sniffly kid back to daycare or to a big indoor birthday party. As a bonus, they’re usually affordable! I reviewed some subscriptions and purchased several for myself and my family. These were our favorite.
