Positively Changing Canada
TESTIMONIAL & STORY OF THE MONTH
As a Big Sister, my role is to pave the development path of my “Little Sister” with education and fun. She’s eight. We have been paired for 3-½ months. When our outings end well, the reward is seeing her delight. When our outings end with behavior issues, the reward is a discussion about boundaries. Either way, we learn about each other through communication about expectations. Mentoring is caring about the intellectual and emotional growth of a child. I consider doing it well akin to a well-tended fire that rewards you with glowing warmth in sub-zero temperature.
- Big Sister, Chris
