Do-Gooders

With so many people in need around the globe and at home, it’s imperative that we teach our littles to help others. Here are three easy steps:

Volunteer as a family Be sure to get the kiddos involved in picking the organization or activity so that they feel part of the difference made. You can join in on a community recycling day, serve food to those in need on a holiday, or organize a clothing drive.

Educate kids on the world With plenty of children’s books highlighting everything from activists to foreign cultures, this is an easy route to open their eyes to life outside of their bubble. Looking to make a day of it? Take them to a local march for something you feel passionate about.

Teach them empathy Start the discussion on empathy early with your kids. Discuss feelings, both theirs and of those around them, and have a family motto in place that puts kindness and compassion first.
