Ways to Model Kindness to Your Children

1. Speak uplifting words

Children learn a lot from the way we speak to them, both our words and our tone of voice. Read this post on Ways Your Words Can Help Your Kids

2. Let your good deeds shine

When you do good for others, let your children see it. Not to brag, but so they will learn how to serve others through you. This is an important life skill best taught through modeling so they will be comfortable with all types of kindness.

3. Discuss current events with them and help them get involved

The news can be scary. Help your children better understand the news by talking about it with them. Also, give them opportunities to discover ways they can help. Children can learn to raise money, collect needed items, make cards for the sick and so much more. Here is an article on ways your children can process the news in a healthy way.

4. Make kindness a priority so it becomes a habit
