3 Ways to Teach Your Children About Charity

Help build a foundation of charitable giving for your children and show them that their actions, no matter how small, can make a real difference.

Here are some easy ways to teach your child about charity:

1 Show Them That They Already Do It

Smiling at someone on the street, holding doors open for people who need a hand or visiting a sick relative is still charity because it warms someone’s heart. Most children already do these things, but they will be pleased to learn that they’re helping out.

2 The Value of Time

With limited financial means, it can be hard for children to donate money. Use this as a chance to teach them that they have a much more valuable resource than cash – they have time, which can be just as powerful.

Encourage them to help neighbors with small jobs. If they are older, help them to volunteer at local clubs, hospitals and take part in charitable events at school.

3 Celebrate

When your children give, tell them that you’re proud of them. Show them pictures and thank you notes from the places they have helped, so they can see the impact and feel appreciated for their contributions.
