We all freeze with fear when we hear teen suicide is on the rise. So this month, we’re making a conversation about suicide our feature because not talking about it doesn’t make it go away.
Also in this issue: how caring for others helps kids. We’re discussing gratitude and volunteering — both parts of Raising Kind, our yearlong conversation on how families can nurture empathy, mindfulness and kindness.
Finally, we’re ending with the first part of our annual Gift Guide. There are no “turkeys” in our editors’ picks of the 12 best tech toys of the year. Personally, I’m eyeing one of those FurReal Friends.
And with that, let me wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving. We at ParentMap are grateful for you and look forward to celebrating the season together.
