Chalk Talk: Expanding Your Child’s World Through Volunteering
One of the best ways to broaden your child’s view of the world is through helping others. It is very important for children to understand, from an early age, that there are people in our communities who need our help and that we have an obligation to do what we can for others. Show your child how s/he can make a difference through small and big gestures, from picking up trash in the park to visiting with senior citizens in a nursing home. Research volunteer opportunities through community organizations and your child’s school, which offers many chances to make a difference. For example, you could arrange for your child to read at the local children’s hospital or help to organize a canned food or clothing drive through school or church. Volunteer your time at a local homeless shelter to serve a meal or offer to share your musical talent by singing for shut-ins during the holidays. By exposing your child to the plight of others through volunteering, you will make a positive and lasting impact in the life of your child and work to change the world for others simultaneously.
