Kellan's preschool is sponsoring a canned food drive for the month of November. The class has done a fantastic job of collecting non-perishable food and many of the parents have talked about it as a way to discuss the meaning of giving with preschoolers.
I've found it's not an easy subject. Kellan has asked me why some people don't have enough to eat and whether everyone gives food away. He's also asked about people who are homeless. I've tried to answer his questions the best way I know how, but I wonder if I can do better. I found some good advice for school-age children that can works for younger kids.
How do you talk to your kids about helping those in need?
