Lend a Hand

Happy Monday Mom's Dads, and caregivers!
-Teach your child the value of volunteering in your local community. So what if you’ve never volunteered in your life…..start today. You can make it fun, read to old people at the local retirement home or walk dogs for the local shelter. If your child is very young start small by teaching them to pick up litter or trash on the beach and even let them hand the quarter to the homeless man ( as long as he looks safe, LOL). I once saw a father and daughter sitting on a bench waving and blowing kisses to passerby’s, you’d be surprised at how many people were extremely excited by her exuberance.  I also once saw a little girl at a fast food joint passing out napkins to every person sitting down and telling them to enjoy their meal!
Teach our kids to be aware and courteous of others, in the words of Gandhi :Be the change you wish to see in the world”
