    Nice article and good examples. More important than anything mentioned in this article would be to teach the kids to not trumpet in the streets, how much or often they give. We used to have neighbors who never missed an opportunity to talk—quite loudly—about how much they gave to others. “Well, it’s not that we’re so well off ourselves—but as long as there’s one person out the struggling—and we’re in a position to help....” It got old. It started out being about helping others and soon became apparent that it was clearly about themselves. If the right hand is not supposed to know what the left hand is doing—suffice it to say that these people had “This is the hand I do my giving with,” written in Sharpie on the palm.
