When moms want to give *more* -- Cathy Futrowsky
When Cathy Futrowsky's girls, now 11 and 13, were younger, she asked them to pick out eight (or more) of their things to give away during Hanukkah -- "nice things that were still in good shape but which they had outgrown or in which they lost interest."
"We were trying to teach them about sharing with others, charity, and the more mundane idea of cleaning out what you don't need any more, and learning what to do without versus keeping things with sentimental value," said the Silver Spring, Maryland mom.
