Kindness and Caring

Your child can show kindness and caring by:

  • demonstrating these attributes toward themselves and others, including family, friends, and pets
  • being aware of others’ feelings without teasing or using put-downs
  • helping someone who is having a bad day

Encouraging kindness and caring in your child:

  • Show your child the importance of being kind and caring by displaying kindness and caring to your child and others.
  • Share your feelings with your child, which provides him or her with the opportunity to be kind and caring.
  • Expose your child to the power of kindness through random acts of kindness toward people, animals, and the environment.
  • Read and discuss media stories that depict acts of kindness and caring.

Kindness is a very big thing
