The importance of helping others
Your child will discover that the world is a better place when people help each other. Consider these ideas for raising a helpful youngster.
1. Take on chores. Helping starts at home, and regular chores are a good place to begin.
2. Assist classmates. Let your youngster see that he/she has the power to help others. If he/she mentions someone who might need help (say, a classmate who is struggling with math facts) ask, "What could you do?"
3. Volunteer together. Your child can be a community volunteer with your help. For ideas, contact the parks and recreation department or community centers.
