Why teach kindness to kids?

The practice of teaching children about essential social skills such as kindness, responsibility, awareness of self and others, and emotional regulation is known as social-emotional learning.

Research supports a wealth of benefits for children who engage consistently in social-emotional learning, including:

  • Improved social skills and relationships
  • Increased positive attitude towards self and others
  • Better academic achievement
  • Fewer conduct problems

Additionally, studies suggest that people who adopt random acts of kindness into their daily lives feel less stressed and even live longer!

“SEL [Social-Emotional Learning] can help all young people and adults thrive personally and academically, develop and maintain positive relationships, become lifelong learners, and contribute to a more caring, just world.

-Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

"If you want your child to choose kindness in their moments of anger, show them kindness in your moments of anger."

                When it comes to a positive approach to discipline, kindness looks like this:

                Many adults today did not grow up with a positive, authoritative approach to discipline. It takes time, practice, and courage to unlearn the patterns you may have experienced growing up and adopt new methods.
