5 Reasons Why It's Cool to be Kind for KidsKindness isn't just something that you can practice. Kindness can be a way of life as well. My husband and I are frequently told that our children are incredibly kind. To me, this is one of the biggest compliments that I can receive as a parent. Raising kids to be kind has always been our goal and it's pretty amazing that these three children LOVE to be kind. They love to go out of their way to do things for others and they are always coming up with ways that we can help people out by being kind.

“Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern, and care are words that are associated with kindness.” ~ Psychology Today

  1. Kindness is contagious. Just like smiling, kindness tends to spread around as soon as someone starts it. It can begin with a small, simple act or you can do something large.
  2. Kindness helps with anxiety and stress. Being kind helps lower stress levels and decreases anxiety in everyone!
  3. Kindness lets you make connections. Being kind gives you an opportunity to meet people you might not have otherwise met.
  4. Kindness comes back around. We all know that what comes around goes around like the old saying says and this is fabulous when it comes to kindness. I see kids doing kind things for my children and others.
  5. Being kind to yourself is important. This is hugely important. How often are we tough on ourselves but kind to others? Being kind to yourself can be as simple as smiling at yourself in the mirror or leaving positivity notes around your home. Taking a mental health day for yourself is also an act of kindness.
