There are subjects our kids are taught at school all year long. Math, reading, science, history, etc. One lesson that should be woven into all that your kids do is kindness.
So many people lack the skills to be kind these days, I believe something needs to be done about it. Our kids learn by watching us, so the best thing we can do is model the behavior we want them to exhibit. Be kind yourself and your children will naturally learn kindness.
There are other ways to teach kindness as well. We try to talk about kindness regularly with our girls in addition to modeling the behavior. Having an open dialogue is very important. You can also take your kids to volunteer with people that are less fortunate and show them how to be kind.
These days, technology and electronics are a part of daily life, so why not incorporate that into your kindness lessons? Here’s a great list of titles to watch on Netflix to help teach kindness to your children.
