Keeping It Kind
When it comes to instilling values, beliefs, and morals in your children, the most powerful tool you have is yourself. Set the example in your home by treating everyone around you with respect and kindness. When your children mimic your actions--and they will-- reinforce their compassion with praise and acknowledgment.This will not only encourage more kind behaviors but also create a more loving home. -Boystown Parenting
This week, schools nationwide are participating in the Great Kindness Challenge. The GKC is intended to promote a culture of kindness and compassion while strengthening students’ social and emotional well-being.
The Great Kindness Challenge offers families a checklist of activities and mini lessons to teach kindness in your home. Additionally, in this month’s Counseling Connection newsletter, we share lessons and resources that highlight the value of kindness, for others and ourselves.
Our current circumstances have been challenging and it’s ok to feel many and mixed emotions. Many of us are suffering from uncertainty, anxiety, and isolation from circumstances that we can’t control. Although we can’t change our situation, we do have control over our own words, actions, and behavior including acts of joy, gratitude, and kindness. I hope you join us next week as we focus on “keeping it kind.”
