We'll all do our best to help each other out in the spirit of raising more compassionate, civic-minded kids in an age of cynicism.

My kids were so excited to deliver meals in our neighborhood. They even brought drawings to hand out with the meals.

But at one home the resident was quite upset by their intrusion on her regular schedule (though they never stepped inside - she seemed upset and confused when they tried to hand her some drawings).

How do I help them understand the situation from her perspective? And what's the best way for us to react?
