CARING: A person of character is caring, compassionate, kind, loving, considerate and charitable.
ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO AT HOME TO TEACH CARING
Look for opportunities to volunteer with your children. This can be as simple as taking food to an ailing neighbor, helping a senior citizen with yard work or helping care for a young child. In addition, you could talk with your child's teacher about opportunities for assisting the school with outreach to the community. Students could work on a service-learning project that provides food to a food pantry (A great example is our annual Souper Bowl food drive), birthday or holiday gifts for those that otherwise wouldn't have them, notes or letters to children in the hospital or visits to the elderly in residential facilities. Be sure to provide a time for them to talk to you about what they saw and what they felt like when they showed caring.
