Parents who are looking for a different kind of gift to give their children this holiday season should consider giving the gift of their own quality time.
Brittany Thomas is a licensed social worker and therapist for the Bridges Day Treatment program at Family and Children’s Center in Winona. Thomas says spending time with children during the holidays is a great gift.
Thomas says spending time together over the holiday break gives families a chance to create new traditions.
Thomas, who works with preschool age children, ages 3 to 6, at the center, says kids really cherish the time parents spend with them and the holidays give familes a great opportunity to do it.
