The holiday season gives us, as parents, the chance to show our children what generosity means. This season, help your teens develop a generous attitude by involving the whole family in volunteer and donation opportunities.
Make use of the many opportunities for charitable giving this holiday season by involving the whole family in volunteering and donation decisions. Children and teenagers are more likely to be interested in a cause that they have helped choose. Take time to ask your whole family for ideas about where to spend the day volunteering or which local cause to support.
Your child may have no interest in serving the homeless at a local soup kitchen, but don’t worry, this doesn’t mean your child is heartless. Remember, just like us, our children have specific passions. So, your child is not into preparing food, but he or she might love art. Consider local organizations that support art programs for young children, and your child’s interest in the project may surprise you. Listen to your children to find causes they can passionately support. Your children’s interest may range between cooking, computer work, senior adults, literacy, animals, children, and the environment.
Tangible opportunities can help stress the importance of generosity. Consider adopting a family for the holiday season. Organizations often provide the opportunity to purchase gifts for a local family in need of assistance. Allow everyone in your family to help choose the gifts for the children. Use the shopping trip as a chance to discuss how gratefulness prompts us to be generous to others in need.
