Make your older kids cook fror Thanksgiving; it will make them appreciate tradition, create their own

A good friend of mine has unleashed a wonderful surprise on all her kids coming to visit from college for Thanksgiving.

She is going to make them bring or make a dish to create the dinner while she sits and takes a needed day off from work.

Hooray for her!

Mom is not being selfish. She wants her children to appreciate the tradition of the meals they've had many years before, learn how to make the dishes and start new traditions of their own -- for the current family and the ones they will create.

It is a great idea, one that will bring a family closer. And that's what Thanksgiving is supposed to be about.
