Parental responsibility No. 425: teaching your kids that Thanksgiving is more than a long weekend bookended by parades and leftover pumpkin pie.
Get the message across with a gratitude jar. Before the turkey is served, gather your pilgrims and ask them what they’re grateful for. Write down each gem on a slip of paper (Mom and Dad, you do it, too) and tuck the notes into a jar.
When setting the table for your fall feast, use the jar as a centerpiece of riches to share with family and friends.
And because not everyone is so fortunate, we’re using our bounty to spread the word about Future Fortified. More than 200 million kids don’t have diets with enough essential nutrients — and Future Fortified wants to change that.
Join us on Twitter this week (#thankfulforthefuture) and share what you’re thankful for.
So we can build a better future for all.
Our friends at Future Fortified have created a message template to help get your family’s gratitude jar started. Find out more about their effort to rid the world of malnutrition at futurefortified.org.
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
