Getting our daughter involved in growing, harvesting, and preparing food from our garden takes a lot of the "scary" out. I'm okay when she pops a fresh tomato in her mouth and doesn't chew it, because to me getting the fruit/vegetable in her mouth is half the battle.
I’m asking, “What can I do to lighten the load of others, and where can I get started?” And the good news is I don’t have to start from scratch (and neither do you)! Turns out there are a TON of organizations already set up that focus on difficulties in our communities and how to help.
Now that I'm the parent of a spectacled kiddo, I'm realizing how much of an emotional toll this could take on my little girl if I don't handle this transition carefully. Already when I tell neighbors, friends, and family that my daughter had to get glasses, they make remarks tinged with sympathy.
Many parents have children who are feeling the effects of isolation. Use this list to bring joy and hope into Easter as you teach them bigger life lessons about love and sacrifice.
