Season of giving takes time for young children to understand

By Tim Kowols

 

Northern Door Children’s Center’s Karen Corekin-DeLaMer says patience and repetition are key when it comes to teaching young children to give back during the holiday season. The idea of sharing is a difficult concept for kids to truly understand until they are eight years old, so buying a special toy to donate to someone else could be confusing. Corekin-DeLaMer says kids learn through repetition and modeling after their family members.

 

 

 

She adds that storybooks are also a great way to show children the importance of giving in an easy to understand way.
