This article explores the ways in which families can teach their children about social responsibility during the pandemic. The author draws on research conducted by the Roots of Engaged Citizenship Project which shows that families reinforce important civic lessons by the way they communicate current events, model behaviors, challenge their kids to ask questions about fairness and equity and create opportunities for involvement in the community.

Parents of children of any age will appreciate the seven specific strategies to help kids learn to be good citizens during the pandemic by showing them we all have responsibilities to care for others in our communities, to notice and show gratitude for those who serve our communities and to see and understand injustice.
