With Mandela Day around the corner, creative parenting expert Nikki Bush chats to #WeekendBreakfast host Phemelo Motene about the importance of community service and volunteerism for the youth.
Bush says that human dignity is something that we have to teach our children. We have to teach our children to appreciate what they have because other people might not have as much she adds.
Mandela Day and community service and volunteerism is really all about human dignity.— Nikki Bush, creative parenting expert
Volunteerism and community service is part of the educational curriculum in both government and private schools. Bush says that community service is primarily geared for Grade 10 – 12 learners.
When your kids hit the ages of 15 – 18 years-old, you don’t need to accompany them when volunteering because they can go with organised groups or friends.
Some schools are very proactive in the community service space.— Nikki Bush, creative parenting expert
