How to raise generous children

If you want your children to learn the value of giving, our money expert Nathan Bachrach says there's no time like now to start teaching them.

Ask you child what causes they would support, if they had money or time to give away. Then think about matching the money they raise as a motivator.

Show your child that donating time can be just as important, too. Have them come with you to a soup kitchen, food pantry or animal shelter.

Remember: Kids are sponges. So make sure you're setting a good example, Even the little things, like helping a neighbor or letting someone go ahead of you in line at the store, make a difference.
