Purposeful Parents: Teach Your Children to Give

teach children to giveThe reality of our society today is that so many people have forgotten – or perhaps never learned – how to care for others without the expectation of receiving something in return. The rejection of the qualities of compassion and kindness has left a negative impression on our youth, who rely on the guidance of trusted leaders to develop positive character traits. The most important thing that we as parents, mentors, and role models can do for our children is to teach them to give. If we want to alter society’s propensity to be self-serving, we must instill in the children of this day the obligation of caring for others.

    Thanks for the article. I’m working on this now. I have a 19 year old, a 12 year old, a 10 year old and a 9 year old. Being in the system, I know FIRST HAND how this works. I am EVER SO GRATEFUL for the volunteers at Christmas time, the countless times we’ve had to resort to the pantry and the DOZENS of volunteers (too many to name) that we’ve had to relied on in times of turmoil and stress. It is essential for children to learn giving at early age to appreciate the value of a dollar and also charity. It gives them substance and teaches them to value certain things. Thanks AGAIN!!!

    Its funny how others do not comment so much on topics as this. These are the things we need to be reading and commenting on for others who are naive to this knowledge can get to grow on. We have minutes to reach millions cause time is running out here on earth.
