A sign hangs in our kitchen that says, “We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.” A simple statement, but full of meaning. Gratefully, my children, for the most part understand well that when we help one another, we are helping create a better world. However, moments happen when it becomes difficult for them to give things they are attached to (especially my youngest). When that happens, I realize that a fun activity is often the best way to keep them engaged while teaching them the important value of giving.
And what I know for sure is that the more I let them direct the process of giving whether it is volunteering, fund-raising, helping elders…, the greater the involvement they will feel and the more they will learn from the experience.<
