NEW YORK (PIX11) — It’s never too early to instill virtues like generosity and selflessness in children.

Grace Bastidas, editor-in-chief of Parents, joined New York Living on Tuesday to share some ideas for getting kids involved from a young age.

“When it comes to volunteering, you don’t even have to stray far from your routine,” said Bastidas. “You can dedicate one Saturday a month to cleaning up your local park, and that way your kid does their part in protecting the environment and they’re getting fresh air.”
