How to Teach Your Kids the Importance of Giving Back

It’s National Volunteer Week so I wanted to share some ideas on helping your kids develop an attitude for gratitude with ideas and resources on projects the family can do together to help others. Check out the article I wrote for Patch.com on How To Teach Your Kids the Importance of Giving Back. There are some good ideas and resources for helping protect our environment, perfect for Earth Day next week.

CoolMomPicks.com had a great post on Quick, easy ways to volunteer while the kids are young.

Also, for National Volunteer Week take the time to thank the people who volunteer in your community or in your organization. We were in the hospital for 2 days with my daughter and I just want to give a big THANK YOU to all of the wonderful and friendly people who volunteer in the pediatric wards. My family thanks you for your kindness and help!

How does your family volunteer? At what age can you get the kids involved?
