Why We Need to Prioritize Volunteering with Our Kids

Why We Need to Prioritize Volunteering with Our Kids

Guest Blog Post by our Friend Amy Carney, Author of Parent on Purpose

When my kids were young, I knew that I wanted to raise them in a family who was known for their kindness, generosity, and ability to love others well.

What I didn’t know was how difficult it would be as a parent to actually live this out.

We want our kids to be kind.

We want our sons and daughters to be compassionate.

We want our offspring to be loving and empathetic toward others.

We can’t just want our children to grow up with these essential values and character traits; we must purposely show up in our home, community and world and consistently show kindness, compassion, love and empathy to others.

But, how do we prioritize serving others in this busy culture we are raising our kids in today?

It's Summertime...and the Giving is Easy/ Meaningful Summer Activities for Kids that Support the Community

Do we have you singing our blog title in your head right now?  GOOD!  That means we got your attention.

For some of us…the summer is half over.

We are well into the month of July, have eaten at least 5 S’mores (if you don’t know what those are, you are MISSING OUT!), have given up screaming at the kids to pick up their wet bathing suits off the floor and have probably glanced at the calendar wondering why school can’t start TOMORROW so we can get a break. OR…if you are like my Mom, you are trying to drag out each day just a liiiiittle bit longer so the time doesn’t come when the grandkids have to pack up and head back home.  Either way, the time is drifting by…

…and what do our kids have to show for it (and high scores on video games don’t count!)?
