Welcome to another episode of the Parenting Toolbox podcast. In this episode, we discuss the meaning of charity, which will help you fully understand its definition and in turn teach your children how to be charitable and compassionate and ultimately become a better parent.
Different people have different definitions of charity, but the overarching thought around it is that charity involves having compassion and being able to care for others who are not as fortunate as you are. More often than not, charity is defined as giving others something they need, something that you may or may not realize you had. It’s not always monetary; sometimes, it can be encouragement and words of advice that can help an individual grow and flourish so they can achieve their goals and dreams.
Children need to learn the importance of charity at a young age – because as they grow up to be active member of society, they should always have that compassion to extend a helping hand when someone else is struggling or in need.

My way of paying it forward in my family is to model that we are all citizens of the world, and that we’re all in this together – we’re one tribe. – Marishu
Charity can be in the form of supporting someone to achieve a goal, doesn’t have to be monetary. – Marishu
