Every parent wants to raise kind children. Start the discussion of what it means to treat others with these 10 children’s books about being kind.
Ask any parent which values they want to teach children, and ‘kindness’ will make that list.
We need kindness more than ever in this world. We need kids to extend genuine kindness that isn’t rewarded with stickers or a high-five. Kindness that’s done when no one is looking.
More importantly, we need kids to stick up for others. To not look the other way when they see someone needs their help. And to feel empathy for those around them.
I want my kids to grow up into kind adults. So far I like what I’m seeing. They ask one another, “Are you okay?” and fetch a favorite toy when they see someone hurt. They’re concerned when their friends feel upset. And they give genuine hugs, kisses and “I love you’s” to me and my husband.
Unprompted, natural kindness.
As always, I turn to children’s books to teach the values of kindness I want them to learn. These 10 children’s books are fantastic talking points. Discuss what it means to be kind, and the importance of being so.
