Be a role model to raise kind children

Children learn best by example. We as parents/caregivers can take simple actions to promote kindness and compassionate behavior in children.

n Help an elderly or disabled neighbor with chores.

n  Give canned goods to a food bank or to a family in need.

n Say “please” and “thank you.”

n Be courteous to everyone.

n   Express appreciation for kind behavior.

n Smile! Vote! Make your bed! Obey speed limits! Open the door for others!
