Teaching Children To Help Others

I often think how great it is when I see people helping out. It was the way I was raised my parents and grandparent taught me from a young age how to help out. Perhaps they did not always have the money to help those in need but they seemed to always find the time to help others. That is perhaps the first tip you should have your children see you help others. Perhaps if possible if they are old enough to help out their selves that is what they should do. I can remember the many times that we helped clean houses, work on houses and deliver meals and food.

Volunteering as a family draws you all closer. It allows the child to learn the importance of helping out the community and demonstrates to them that you care as well. You can have them go through there stuff that they no longer play with or wear. Letting them take part in decisions helps them to grow to be a strong person as well. Also remind them of all that they have and they should be thankful.

As I said my grandparents and parents taught me great morals and lessons as a child. I carried this through with my own children. We have volunteered in shelters, food pantries, clothing closets, helped older adults at the church, as well as many other places. I hope that you will find something that you and your child can do together as a family.
