“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these.”
George Washington Carver | botanist, agricultural chemist, inventor, educator
At the beginning of the year, my husband and I decided to focus on just three things this year with our children. That way we wouldn’t get so distracted by all the shiny objects (taekwondo! swim team! science camp!) and the problems that feel big for a couple of weeks but really aren’t (like our son going commando a little too often).
When we were brainstorming, the first thing to pop into my head was kindness.
The 22 acts of kindness I’m sharing today may seem insignificant in the grand scheme. But my hope is that by continually doing things like this, your children and mine will develop a habit of simple, everyday kindness that will one day grow into a profound compassion for the people around them.
To get the full scoop, I hope you’ll come visit one of my favorite sites, Kids Stuff World, where I’ll now be contributing bi-monthly. My first post, 22 Kid-Approved Acts of Kindness, is up today! Thanks so much for reading!
