Holiday gifts: a gateway into consumerism or a learning opportunity for children?

2 de February de 2018..

Last Christmas Eve, Laboratório de Educação president Beatriz Cardoso granted an interview to the daily CBN news program to discuss the educational impact of consumerism during the holiday season.

Cardoso problematized the excessive importance families often place on gifts as material belongings as opposed to meaningful gestures. She also offered practical suggestions on how to introduce opportunities for children to learn about responsible consumption.

The conversation ended with a key takeaway: that adults should pay attention to the behaviors and attitudes they model in everyday life, because they are children’s most important references.
