Where do children get a heart for service and sharing?
We may try as parents and educators to teach sharing and service but the kids learn so much more when they do… I know your next question….how can we get our young children to do service opportunities when my local soup kitchen says no?
Well you’re in for a treat. Today listen to our interview with Meredith Alexander of Milkandbookies.org. We’re talking about how we can get our young children the under 5s active in service opportunities so they can be just like their big brothers or sisters.
In the links below you’ll find some discussion questions to take away and talk with your spouse, partner, friends and family. It’s not until you talk about play that you find allies in your area and fellowship in numbers. In the comments, share your experiences of service opportunities you’ve seen, done or would love to do as a family?
