Thanksgiving is fast approaching! Now is a great time to talk with your family about the history of the holiday. Experts say it’s important to explain the real, complicated history of the Thanksgiving myth. At the same time, it’s important to spend time giving thanks for all the good things in our lives.

These holiday memories will influence who your children become while bringing your family closer together around shared values. Check out these resources for more info:
