Raise a Generous Teen


Adolescents are developing a sense of identity and often look to parents, friends, teachers, pastors, and coaches to help them answer the question, “Who am I?”

Here are five ways to help teens learn to prioritize caring in their actions.

  • Model good household finances by explaining how you prioritize charitable giving in your budget.
  • Encouraging teens to use the save/spend/give model for managing their money.
  • If you support charities or missionaries, explain this to your teens, and involve them.
  • Be generous together. Take your teens and some of their friends to serve at a local homeless shelter, do a service project, or even go on a mission trip.
  • Make it their own. Ask your teen if there is a cause or issue that stirs their heart. Help them come up with ways to do something about it by serving, volunteering, or fundraising.
