The Gift of Sharing

by David McCurrach

Learning they can make a difference in other people's lives by sharing their time and money is another lesson children can learn when they're young. It's a habit that will benefit them throughout their lives.

Providing your kids money to share - a set amount for them to contribute to those less fortunate and to causes they believe in - gives them a feeling of worth no amount of spending can ever provide.

Sharing can also be therapeutic for children. Maybe a family member is struggling with cancer and your kids find a donation to the Cancer Society makes them feel like they're doing something to help. Or maybe their favorite pet ran away and they find a donation to the local pet shelter eases some of the pain.

Through sharing, kids learn that sometimes the best way to help themselves is to help someone else.
