Have observed that children get the concept of giving at a very young age, even beginning at age 5. While visiting the Closet with my grandson (age 5) he asked about the people and kids that come to the Closet why they don’t have anything or need to shop at the Closet?
In an attempt to answer my grandson’s question I asked him what he would do if he didn’t have any toys? He said he would be sad. I then asked him what other children would feel if they didn’t have any toys, he said they would be sad too. People (parents) and their kids who don’t have a lot or may not have any toys come to the Closet and get toys along with other clothing items.
I asked my grandson if he thought he had a lot of toys… “Yes”. And would it be ok to give some of them to the Closet to go to kids that didn’t have any and he again said yes adding that he was excited he could help out. So that evening we went through his toy box and pulled out toys that he wanted to give away realizing that he would not see them again and it was ok and we took them to the Closet the next day. And he was still ok.
