To encourage youth and support strong families and communities, try incorporating the Guiding Growth tips below into your daily routine
Practical Principle: Caring
Young person places high value on helping other people.
- While respecting physical distancing, don’t lose sight of the value of community service. Help an elderly person by grocery shopping for them, volunteer to spruce up your neighbor’s yard with some spring flowers, or donate money to a COVID-19 relief fund to support those experiencing hardships during the pandemic.
- Inspire your older child(ren) to take an interest in his/her/their younger siblings. Encourage them to spend “sibling time” once a week doing whatever they want. Time spent together are memories made forever.
