That is why parenting is so important because it takes a strong willed adult to teach their child about the beliefs of not only what they celebrate but about other people’s beliefs also. This is also the reason as to why it takes a special type of person to be a true parent because only someone who is dedicated to teaching their child about life and is concerned about him growing up into becoming a positive person in life will take into account other people and how they live their life during the holiday season. But since ignorance to other people’s beliefs is not truly bliss it is important that your child understand that there are different types of people and that not everyone is the same in their beliefs in how they celebrate the holidays. In fact your child should be made aware that there are some people who do not celebrate the holidays at all. Once your child has an understanding about all of this he may learn to appreciate what you do for him and this may also influence him to stick with your beliefs about the holiday once he is old enough to make his own decisions.
