Like most things, kindness is best learned through repetition. The more your children see examples of kindness, and have opportunities to practice it, the more likely they will grow up as kind and loving adults.
Teaching Kindness Requires Deliberate Thought
It’s easy sometimes to get lost in the schedule and busyness of life and forget that training children requires deliberate intervention and correction. Helping our children to learn the beauty of thoughtfulness and kindness can be lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life.
That’s the beauty of this free checklist! Just print it up and hang it on the fridge for a helpful reminder once a day (or once a week) to give your child a practical way to demonstrate thoughtfulness. The earlier you get started, the faster these kindness flowers will bloom!
