How To Raise Compassionate Children
“If you lead a compassionate life, your children will naturally see its importance to you and will assume its importance for themselves,” says Jim Taylor Ph.D.
This is a concept that hits home with Arizona mothers Lisa Geyser and Alex Sklar who founded the charity Families Giving Back. It is all based on parents bringing their children, no matter how young, to volunteer.
“We felt like this was something that was missing in the community, this was something we wanted for our boys. We started talking and we thought if it doesn’t exist, let’s create it.”
That was in 2012. Since then, Sklar and Geyser have teamed up with over 20 non-profits to host family friendly events 2 to 3 times a month. Many of them sell out.
