Like all behavior, practice makes perfect and the more we practice generosity the better we get at it. To loop back to where we started, being generous is the best way to teach generosity.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and give. It is the season!
Every one rebels, and it is also necessary to some extent. Without rebels, we would not push our limits and advance our abilities as individuals or as a community. It is also essential to channel that rebellion into the right things and in the right way as it can cause immense harm if left unchecked. Anger tends to build up, and it is for parents to help children with their anger management issues and tantrums.
