What if you could get your kids to put their things away after school, get rid of their grumpies, and improve focus all with one 10 minute activity? It might just be a miracle. We'll be talking about this along with ways to teach your children about the joy of giving back and a fresh idea for a collective gift for an entire family on this week's show.

Our guest this week is Jan Helson. Jan has a heart for giving and she's sharing that with the world. She and her daughter Rachel are showing kids that no matter who they are or where they live, they can make a difference. Through her work with Global Game Changers and her children's website she partners with parents and schools so we can make giving part of who our kids are, not just something they do. Research shows that people are happiest when they can give to others and Jan will show us how to take our traditional ideas about charity and sharing and reshape them to let our kids discover joy as they make the world a better place.

Join us live at Noon ET (11 am CT, 10 am MT, 9 am PT)
