Tri-Town Council asks…What’s in YOUR lifepack? Fill it with Assets! (option 2 – superpower connection)
November’s Life is Good Superpower is Gratitude! AND the TTC Asset Connection is… Asset #39: Sense of Purpose – Child welcomes new experiences, sometimes thinks about what life means and imagines what s/he might do or be in the future.
TTC ASSET TIP: Know what your kids care about and help them make a difference!
From Greater Good Science Center: “The deepest sense of gratitude in life comes from connecting to a bigger picture, to an issue that matters to others and doing things that contribute to society down the road.”
Help your child(ren) discover their passions and find a path to purpose that resonates with their values, interests and dreams. This starts with feeding their interests in the social issues they care about and pushing them to learn as much as they can about those issues and discover ways they can make a difference.
- Does your child care about animals? Help them volunteer at the local animal shelter!
- Are your children passionate about helping kids in need? Invite them to participate in getting a toy or clothing donation ready for a local charity.
- Is hunger a cause they care about? Volunteer at a local food pantry or collect food donations in the neighborhood.
