- Set the Example: Give your children the last bite of your treat. Tell them you did it because you love to be generous.
- Have them Practice: Make your children share the last piece of their snack or treat with you or their siblings. Praise them lavishly. If they offer this on their own, consider giving them an extra snack or treat (as long as it’s not expected).
- Have them Brainstorm: Encourage your children to think of unique ways to give to others in need.
- Let them Share: Sometimes, my daughter likes to share all of her treats and hardly gets any for herself. I catch myself telling her not to share so much. Although it seems obvious, don’t forget to allow your children to give generously.
