Today is Giving Tuesday. Actually, every day is a good day to share and care and teach your children to do the same. Here is the ASL sign for give.
PARENT ADVICE FOR TEACHING CHILDrEN TO BE MORE GIVING
Sharing and caring, like kindness gives back to the giver. Here are some quick tips.
Tip one: Have a charity box what Jews call a pushke or piggy bank for collecting spare coins for charity or to give to the homeless or other street needy people. Young children love to put coins in a slot and that starts the giving.
Tip two: Almost all the fast food restaurants have charity boxes. Get in the habit of dropping change in those boxes or better yet have the kids do so.
Tip three: Tithe part of the money you spend on your children’s gifts and donate it a charity in your child’s name.
Tip four: Make a point of recycling goods and toys and have your kids take part in doing so. Coat drives, food drives, toy drives, Goodwill or other donation centers need your used but usable items.
Tip five: Volunteer as a family.
You must get tired of hearing me say kindness gives back; but it does and teaching kindness, sharing, and caring to your children will move at least a small corner of the world toward peace.
As always thank you for following me. If you know someone else who will benefit from my thoughts, send this to them. Liking, commenting, and sharing are other ways you can practice kindness, sharing and caring. Doing so helps me stay strong and hopefully will spread ideas others will also find helpful.
