About a year ago, we started formally giving our son a list of "contributions" to make around the house because he is part of our family. Some people call these contributions "chores." Each week, as he completes his contributions, we give him money, which is distributed to his Spend, Save, and Share jars.
The hearts of these parents just about burst when D decided on his own to offer up all the money in both his share and spend jars to help with our church's service project to send medical supplies to Haiti. He's been adding more money over the last month, and today was the big day when he brought his contribution to church.
As we head into the holiday season, we'll be looking for more opportunities to share. I made the printable at the top of this post to help our son remember the virtue of generosity.
What do you do to teach your children to share?
