Start a Tradition
In between tucking into the turkey and tossing the pigskin, create a new tradition.
Give your house Guests and family strips of colorful paper, have each person write a few words or lines of thanks and sign his or her name, and drop the strips into a clear bowl. Use the bowl as a centerpiece; then , after the feast, pass it around and ask each person to read one note out loud. You may discover that your teenage son is grateful for you after all.
