Sharing is Caring
From the time my kids are old enough to know better, I am teaching them to share. It is an important social skill and makes life a little sweeter. But, not only do I want them sharing with each other, I want them to care about others as well. After all, sharing is caring, right?
My parents were always taking in people when we were growing up. Our house was never empty and when others needed a place to stay, well, they knew where to come. This taught me to share my things with others in need. And it opened my heart and my mind to a world of philanthropic needs. I want my children to understand this as well.
I specifically remember one Thanksgiving when we collected donated foods to share with those in need. I put an ad on a local online board asking for donations, as well as for suggested families that could use a holiday meal. After collecting the food, the kids helped put together the supplies for 7 families. We then delivered each one ourselves and my children were shown how blessed it felt to give rather than receive.
