Summary
"This book isn't about teaching "please" and "thank-you." It's about teaching children how to form compassionate habits that will last a lifetime--ones that will enrich their lives as well as the lives of those around them. At a time when we experience so much rude behavior from children and adults, and targets of bullying are getting younger and younger, we need to ask ourselves, how do we want to be treated? and how are we going to treat others? Now more than ever, kindness is paramount, and each act of kindness makes a difference. what's more, kindness leads to a lot of other good things, like compassion and happiness, tolerance, better relationships, improved self-esteem, and good mental and physical health. Don't we all want that for our children, our families, and our community? The kindness advantage is a practical and concrete guide designed to be read with children as young as four. Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, or a teacher, you'll discover ten fundamental concepts to weave into your children's daily life, hands-on activities that teach empathy and inspire compassion and connection, and creative ideas for empowering your children to make a difference in their community and the world. By taking this opportunity to nurture kindness, you are taking a very important step in raising happier, more harmonious, and fulfilled children, who in turn will grow into more successful and fulfilled adults."--Back cover
