How do you help out the adults in your life? Maybe you’ve helped in big ways: supporting someone during an illness or after the birth of a baby. Or perhaps in smaller ways, such as taking out the trash or preparing dinner.

In “Helping My Mom Start Over,” Sarah Williamson writes about taking care of her mother who has multiple sclerosis, or M.S., a disease that can affect many parts of the body and gradually cause serious disability:

Students, read the entire illustrated story, then tell us:

  • What is your reaction to the story? Which parts did you find most surprising, interesting or moving? Why?

  • Do you ever help your parents or other adults in your life, in big or small ways? What do you do for them?

  • How do you feel when you help someone who is normally in the position of helping or supporting you?

  • Tell a story about a moment when you stepped up to support a parent, caregiver or other adult. Whom did you help? What did you do? How did you feel?

    If you’d like, you can illustrate your story as Ms. Williamson did.
