Kids Learning That Kindness Counts

Our kids learning kindness through helping others

Kindness can get lost…

As kids grow up kindness can get lost. Especially with the increase in TV and movie watching and a heavy involvement in social media. The good news is that kindness can be learned; just like any other behavior it takes some repetition, understanding and learning through example.

We came across several wonderful quotes surrounding kindness. Along with these quotes for kids, teaching kids about these historical figures can change the way they view the world and how to treat others. This can truly add more mindfulness into a child’s daily life:

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up.” – Booker T. Washington

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop

You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.” – Publilius Syrus

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” – Amelia Earhart

“Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping them up.” – Jesse Jackson

Beyond this there are so many ways to teach your children…

Kindness and treating others the way they want to be treated can be learned in many other ways. For example, you can send kind thoughts through words of encouragement or lunch box notes. Get them to be mindful and send kind thoughts to those they care about as well. This is a wonderful way to start learning about kindness. You can smile and tell jokes more often, practice random acts of kindness towards friends, family, your spouse and strangers in front of children.

Remember, you set an example for your kids in more ways than you think. Because of this, remind yourself and your children that being kind to others feels good. Making the world a better place can start with even the smallest acts of kindness.
