Teaching Your Kids Early About Charity and How They Can Help

There is great value in teaching your kids about charity from an early age. This is because understanding and being actively involved in charitable causes is a great way to develop empathy, which is something that children will be able to use well into adulthood. Being genuinely empathetic to the feelings and living conditions of others, from a local to a global scale, is not only essential to being a good person, it’s also necessary for both adults and children to function in social situations. In fact, The Conversation points out that developing empathy allows children to better navigate social scenarios, as well as avoid social traumas that may lead to mental or emotional problems in adulthood.


The best way for children to learn about charity is first-hand experience, and the easiest way to do this is to start at home. This can be done in the simple but powerful act of joining a charity car boot sale. Various charitable organisations like the Low Mill Outdoor Centre, the New Dawn Educational Centre, and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance have benefited a lot from the profits made through car boots sales. For your children, every sale is an example of how simply taking care of the stuff at home can contribute to different causes. By explaining to them how the proceeds of the items they sold go to good causes, you can also impart lessons in avoiding waste, the global value of reusing items to limit consumption, as well as how to declutter your home.

Car boot sales may also pave the way for larger charitable actions, such as organising a birthday party where in lieu of gifts, you can ask your child’s friends or classmates to bring donations to children’s welfare organisations instead. This is another great way to start your lessons on charity at home. You can also consult charitable organisations for ideas, because more often than not, they’re more than willing to assist anyone who’s willing to extend a helping hand.

In fact, nowadays, charities have made it easier for every member of the family to join in on the action by offering a variety of undertakings. These can range from active events like fun runs, group walks, and cycle rides to simple activities that everyone can join in with.Save the Children have a dedicated Christmas Jumper Day, which takes a traditional festive concept and applies it to a good cause. This is perfect for families who want to help but don’t have the time to leave their home. Not only can children easily take part in these events, they’ll also be getting a practical lesson in the variety of ways charitable actions can raise awareness for certain issues. With your guidance, you can even allow your child to research on their own and see which charities they themselves want to be involved in.

Remember that the earlier kids learn about charity, the more they’ll be able to take these lessons well into their adult lives. For more insights on raising a healthy family, check out our article on The Next Generation.
