In the last 48 hours these posts by others have crossed my path. I am always looking for ways to show my kids an example of kindness to others. I am always reminding them to be kind to each other (and let's just be honest, sometimes it's REALLY hard to be kind to your siblings.) I was thinking about ways of helping them "get it" this year during the upcoming holiday season. 24 Acts of Service has some great SIMPLE (I need simple, I can be honest) ideas for servicing others and showing kindness to random people. I love it. I needed it. It may help get your own wheels turning about other things too.
The 2nd article is a Harvard study about raising nice kids (did the title give it away??) and has some things to try if you feel like you need help in those areas. Enjoy!
