Y’all, I wish I taught my children more about charity when they were little. It’s not that they’re not charitable right now; I just wish I had started things earlier. Luckily, you can learn from my mistakes. These are some ways to teach your children about charity early in life.
Get Them Involved
Raising kids is no joke, y’all. I remember the practices and parent-teacher conferences; it seems like the list went on and on. But you must make time to teach your kids to be charitable. Fortunately, there are easy ways for kids to give back to their communities:
- They can donate clothes to those in need.
- They can make cards for people in retirement homes.
- They can help a classmate who might be struggling.
Lead by Example
I know life is crazy, y’all. Mamas have so much on their plates, it can be hard to even think about adding another task to the docket. However, if y’all lead by example, your children will learn to become more giving individuals. Your little ones will be more well-rounded and empathetic human beings if they see their parents helping those in need.
Make Lifestyle Changes
Another way to teach your children about charity is to make lifestyle changes. Add charitable activities into your weekly routines. For example, volunteer at a soup kitchen every weekend. Or take the little ones to volunteer at an animal shelter. Y’all can do whatever strikes your fancy as long as it benefits those in need.
Being generous can foster so many good feelings. That’s why y’all need to teach your kiddos how to be giving from an early age. It’s never too soon to start doing the right thing. And don’t forget that these rules apply to yourself. As busy as you are, you never have too much going on to be a good person.
