My daughter is also learning the value of considering other people’s wants and needs and not just her own. We create “care packages” for my boyfriend including handmade cards and pictures as well as store bought gifts. When deciding on a gift for my boyfriend, I’ll talk out loud so my daughter can hear that I’m thinking of his likes and dislikes. An example of this is when we bought a stuffed monkey for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift. He and I always joke about monkeys when we’re being silly, and in discussing this with my daughter we decided to find an outlandish looking stuffed monkey for him that he could hug when he’s not with us.
In a nutshell, my daughter is seeing it’s the simple things that hold a relationship together.
