How To Teach Your Children To Be Givers

As parents, we naturally want our children to be selfless givers. Not only will it enhance their lives, but it will also positively impact on other people lives.

Here are our top 5 ways to teach your little ones to be lifelong givers.

Teach them

It is important to explain to your little ones why it is important to give to others. Simply talking to your little one about how they feel when they give to others or explaining why you think they should give, can be the biggest encouragement your little one needs to give.

Lead by example

It is important to make sure that you let your children see you giving generously to others, whether that is giving to charity or volunteering at your local soup kitchen. As they say, actions speak louder than words, so it is always best to practice what you preach. This makes it almost second nature for your little one to be give help to those who may need it in the future.

Practice makes perfect

Another good way of learning something is by doing it. Try and give your little one opportunities to give and serve at a young age as this will help them develop the habit of helping people from a very young age. Doing simple things such as helping around the house, or doing household chores for grandparents or elderly neighbours, can have a positive impact on your little one’s attitude towards giving.

Make it simple

Giving doesn’t have to be an elaborate statement. Quite often, it is the simple things that make the biggest difference to someone’s life. Look for some opportunities that may seem small, but are perfect for your little ones to be part of. You could even use an incentive system whereby, your children earn money for completing simple tasks and after a certain amount of time, your little one can pick a charity or project to donate the money to. This is a great way of encouraging your children to give to others in the smallest ways.

Celebrate it!

Giving is always more fun when you can celebrate it. Don’t forget to praise your children when you see them being givers. This will encourage them to continue giving in the future and re-affirm all you told them about the rewards of giving.
