The PAW Patrol Pups help by jumping to solve problems and being willing to save the day! Blue helps her friends by using clues to solve mini-mysteries.
Everyone can be a helper! No matter how small, everyone can help others; even babies can brighten someone’s day with a visit, a smile, or a wave.
When children look and listen for ways to help others, they are using their listening comprehension, problem solving, and self-awareness skills to be a good friend. They will boost their self-confidence and make the world a better place. And that helps everyone!
Parent/Caregiver Tip: Research shows that young children naturally want to help. If parents/caregivers allow kids to help, they will continue helping, voluntarily, throughout childhood and as they grow up. (Source)
