Each family has a heritage of how we give to others and how we ask for what we need.
Below is the last series of questions to help you and your daughter talk about the art of giving and asking. It was inspired by Rich Snowden of California, a life coach and Daughters.com fan.

How do you make your decisions about giving and asking for help? Do you plan ahead?
Do you give or ask for help in the moment when something inspires you? Both?
