When it comes to teaching kids about giving back, here are some tips I have found helpful:
1) Let the kids pick a charity or cause that is meaningful to them. (My boys have a little cousin with Cystic Fibrosis, so it makes them feel good knowing that they are helping make him better.)
2) Let the kids decide what to do. (My boys have organized Christmas parties, sold toys, and worked lemonade stands.)
3) Let the kids do the work. (They will feel more connected to the act of giving, if they are doing the work themselves.)
Do you have any tips for teaching kids about giving back? Feel free to share them below.
