One of the best ways to curb kids' greedy attitudes is by requiring that they give to others. Begin by having your family choose a family cause. For example, give part of a weekly allowance to needy kids, adopt an orphan through Save the Children, deliver used toys (in good condition) to the fire department, or bake cookies for the lonely neighbor next door. Once your family decides on a cause, commit to carrying it out. Or give your kids their allowance and require that a portion go to a charity of their choice.That kind of hands-on giving activity can foster an attitude of giving that will help counter greediness more powerfully than almost anything else.
