Guidance and Counseling

The importance of helping others

Your child will discover that the world is a better place when people help each other.  Consider these ideas for raising a helpful youngster.

1.  Take on chores- helping starts at home, and regular chores are a good place to begin.

2.  Assist classmates- Let your youngster see that he has the power to help others.  If he mentions someone who might need help (say, a classmate who is struggling with math facts), ask, "What could you do?"

3.  Volunteer together- Your child can be a community volunteer with your help.  For ideas, contact the parks and recreation department or community centers.
