Learning to help others

Our church is doing a school supply drive for the homeless children in Seminole County. I decided this would be a good chance to teach Curtis about the value in helping those less fortunate than us. We went shopping for a backpack and filled it with school supplies and the church will be giving it to a homeless child from the county.

I decided to pick out all girl stuff since I won't really get much of a chance to do that in the future. Curtis really liked picking out the folders and pens to fill the pack up with. I tried to discuss the importance of helping others while we filled the pack, and I'm not sure if he's too young for this lesson or not, but you gotta start somewhere, right?

Clark tried to help out too, in his own way.

Never too young! Good for you :) The school I work at is one that receives a lot of donations like the one you're making. On behalf of the kids, the teachers, and the parents — thank you :)

This is a great teaching moment for your boys! They will carry this lesson on into adulthood and be generous men when they get older. Keep on doing this whenever you can and in whatever way you can.
