For the last week, you have been working on communication with your children. Teaching them to use their words and express their feelings. Hopefully, some of those communication skills are rubbing off on you as well!
When learning about positive living it’s important to remember that giving is crucial. Living a selfish life will only attract negativity. We, as a parenting community, need to come together and teach the children of the world what it means to give instead of receive.
Teaching your child to do random acts of kindness will not only help them live a positive life but also live a fulfilling and enriched life.
Start by teaching your children why doing kind things are important. Explain to them being kind shows love and caring to the world. That their simple kind gesture can change someone’s life. Our children need to understand that their life matters and can change others lives.
