Children have an innate capacity for kindness and compassion, but these values must be nurtured if they are to flourish in adulthood. Encouraging thoughtfulness is particularly important in a culture saturated with messages of materialism, cynicism and entitlement. This presentation, especially appropriate for parents of young children, explains how caring develops in children and how parents can teach those lessons. Included are 10 simple strategies for raising warm, curious children who understand the joy of compassion and service, and who meet the world with integrity.
If you make charitable giving an integral part of a child’s money-related education, you will encourage caring and civic responsibility. We’ll help you develop a family tradition around giving and help you inspire your children to become active philanthropists regardless of their age—or your income level. You’ll be able to teach your kids they have the power to effect change with their contributions and give them the tools to get started. We all have a responsibility to share with those in need, contribute to causes we believe in, and support the changes necessary to build a better world.
This workshop addresses the unexpected benefits of family volunteering, along with dozens of practical and simple ideas for getting families with children of all ages involved in volunteering together. Parents will quickly see how much they can accomplish, and how easily they can integrate family service into their busy lives.
