This week, Random Acts of Kindness Week (#RAKWeek) there was a lot of talk different things we could do for others. Goodness can come in big and small packages and it’s important for children to not only experience the actual action of kindness to others, but to recognize when they’re on the receiving end.
We all experience them every day on some level. It could be the neighbor that pulled your garbage can off the street, the guy that let you in traffic, a kind word or gesture from a stranger in the grocery store, or the friend that brought you a bottle of laundry detergent and homemade frozen meal because she knew you had a crazy week and couldn’t find time to make it to the store.
By recognizing kind acts that others do for us, we are more inclined to look for little ways to help others. And, life is a little sweeter. So what kindness did you receive from someone this week? How about your children? How did each of you feel when someone was nice or helped you? Start the conversation with the Question of the Week!
Use the Question of the Week to spark conversation with your children about family, money, giving and help them explore what matters most to them.
