December POWerful Word – COOPERATION – Week 4

When each person cooperates, everyone wins. As we say, “one task!” (“Many hands!”) When we cooperate we have more fun and get the job done! Think about it; if you have to clean up the park by yourself, it would take a long time to do the work. But if you had the cooperation of another person or a group of people, what would happen? At this time of year, it’s important to think about how we can cooperate to help others in need. For example, we might participate in charitable giving (giving to those in need). How many of you do some kind of charitable giving- whether it’s clothes, toys, food or something else, to others who are less fortunate? If there are people who don’t have enough to eat or wear, how, specifically, can we cooperate and help? How could that make a difference? What is the reward for cooperation when working towards a goal such as helping others in need (i.e. Quicker, fun, better results, more impact, more ideas)? That’s a big benefit of cooperation!

If you have time: What is one task, of which you were part, that succeeded BECAUSE of cooperation?
