Teaching Children it is Better to Give than to Receive

By Michelle Schibuola

As the holiday season is quickly approaching, I’m looking for a more personal, hands-on way to demonstrate and explain charity to my children rather than just purchasing an item and dropping it in a box or donating money. Kids don’t understand that the donated money will buy milk, bread or other essentials. At the ages of 4 and 7, it’s very difficult for kids to grasp such an abstract concept such as donating to a worthy cause. Most children don’t realize some of their peers aren’t as fortunate to be raised as they are and that many adults don’t have the necessities of life as they should.

The bad are usually taken on a digital camera by someone that may not know how to utilize all the fancy settings and may include last night’s dinner dishes.

A few years ago in Gainesville, a troubled student was spotted by a teacher and friends standing at the top of a bridge and they were concerned for his well-being. All three immediately contacted the PALS counselor at their school to express their concerns.

Shortly after the odd behavior, the troubled youth came in and admitted he had planned to jump off the bridge but decided that he also “wanted to take the others who were bullying him.”
