Children are naturally self centered. One of the challenges of parenting is to help kids understand that they are part of a large world. One terrific way we have found as a family to feel connected to the larger world is through helping others.
For kids, figuring out what they have to give is difficult. Free Rice is a kid-friendly website that has developed innovative ways for kids to help others with websites that reward reading and learning with essentials for kids in need.
