Learning to be kind is something that we can teach children through a variety of kindness activities.
We can perform acts of kindness with our young childrendo random acts of kindness for both friends and strangersand even celebrate those kind gestures through crafts. Most of what we teach our children begins with us, as adults, and how we treat others around us.
As a parent, I often wonder if I am modeling kindness and a grateful heart? When my kids look at me — do they see a kind heart? Am I modeling kindness towards my spouse and family members at all times? Focusing on kindness and compassion helps me to bring sunshine into my own life as well as the lives of others.
So how do I raise a kind hearted kid? What activities can I do with my children to model and teach gratitude? This month, it all started with a few books that Lee and Low sent to us:. I LOVE that they helped my kids see what kindness and gratitude looks like for other children.
Too often, they may not see all the good there is in the world.
Although my family is very generous in nature to begin with, this collection of books really inspired my children to do more. We made a list of things that we could do to show kindness towards others. Go through your clothes and toys that you no longer use. Donate the ones in great shape to a family in need, shelter for children, or church that collects items for families. We made a giving tree. Because my children a young 2, 5, and 8 years old I want to give them choices.
This gives them ownership over how they can be kind to others while providing them with age-appropriate ideas. Save my name,and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
