When Donating to the Philippines, Gets Kids Involved

Uploaded: Nov 14, 2013
If you choose to make a donation to help with relief efforts in the Philippines, get your kids involved. On Couple's Net I will be advocating couple time: time without your kids (and not even talking about them) to build or rebuild your connection as a couple.

Talking about what happened in the Philippines, answering your children's questions (at age appropriate levels), and getting them involved helps them know they can make a difference. Plus, it's an opportunity to instill your values about helping others.
