What are the hardest acts of kindness you've ever done?
Starting and continuing discussions about charitable giving will help your kids notice their own kind acts as well as those of others around them and pave the way for future good-deed doing!
Family dinner time can be a great opportunity to bring up topics of conversation about kids' community service. If dinner time does not work best for you, consider other mealtimes, drive time, bedtime, snack, or even during a club meeting or group get-together!
Remember, it’s okay if a child does not have an answer. Listening first to siblings, peers, or adults who share their thoughts can spark thinking. Just by starting an exchange, you are planting valuable ideas that you can build on over time.
