Raise a Generous Child: Ages 5-11


School-age children need to learn social skills and how to work together. You can help them learn to be good community members by working in groups and taking on age-appropriate chores.

Here are ways to help the child in your life thing of others.

  • Facilitate generosity by giving your child an allowance and have them keep the money in labeled jars: save, spend, and give.
  • At Christmas, “adopt” a family or child through an angel tree charity so that your child or grandchild can help shop for someone else
  • Ask children to cull their toys, then have them participate in a garage sale or direct donation to a charity.
  • Sponsor a child in a developing country and keep the photo on the refrigerator. Involve your child in the relationship by reading and writing letters together.
  • Volunteer as a family in a service project.
