Teaching Compassion to Your Child Made Simple

Teaching Compassion Can Be Difficult

Teaching compassion to a child isn't as simple as it sounds. Children are usually aware of only what's in their world and what affects them. Teaching compassion to young children can be difficult if they have no opportunities to give to others. In addition, teaching compassion to a young child in the context of global poverty can be overwhelming.

Teaching Compassion Through Child Sponsorship

The meaning of compassion, much less teaching compassion, can be hard to grasp when every day nearly 27,000 children younger than 5 die from mostly preventable causes. But Compassion offers your family a practical way to begin teaching compassion to your child: sponsoring a child.

Teaching Compassion Can Begin Today

Teaching Compassion to your child can be done for as little as $38 a month. That's all teaching compassion costs when you sponsor a child through Compassion. For pennies a day, your family can sponsor a child who lives in desperate poverty.

Your sponsored child will know your name, send you letters, and receive your prayers. Your sponsored child will exchange letters with your family, giving your children ample opportunity to learn about his or her world. So begin teaching compassion to your child — sponsor a child today!
