“Volunteer in your local community”

It doesn’t have to be a big event. Any small good deed is worth it. You can ask your children to accompany you to a local shelter and help out serving food. You can get together some used clothes to give to charity. You can help out at a dog shelter to care for abandoned or homeless pets. These will show your kids that caring for others is a wonderful thing, and this will carry over until they grow up as adults.

In the age of technology and social media, it is easy to get swallowed up with gadgets and TV. Let us remember that interacting with other people is still a great way to get involved in the community. It allows kids to see what other people’s lives are like, and it allows them to learn how to empathize and care for others.
