Healthy, strong family relationships are foundational to young people’s growth, learning, and well-being.

 

These relationships build strong social and emotional strengths that kids use throughout their lives.

 

But great family relationships don’t just happen.

Basic Adventure

GOAL:  Help family members develop the virtue of being kind

 

The ADVENTURE:

Review the following information and then choose from the suggestions one of the activities to develop a habit of kindness.

 

REWARD Ideas:

 

 Let your child share what they did for this Adventure and ask them how it impacted them.

 

 Support the child in their 'kindness' efforts, especially if they need something to make it happen.

 

Provide positive feedback when you see your child/children being kind. This doesn't need to be limited to kind acts being done officially for this Adventure. Make it a habit of noticing when you see kindness, recognizing and acknowledging the kindness, expressing gratitude for the kindness, and expressing how the kindness makes you feel.

 

 

 

 

We originally released this Adventure on World Kindness Day, and are releasing it for Summer 2020 in conjunction with the #BeKindUtah campaign, but remember that ANY day is a GREAT day to be kind! (CLICK HERE to share!)

 

Things as simple as a SMILE or a COMPLIMENT can literally change the trajectory of someone's day. You may never know your simple kindness lifted someone struggling to a better place, or helped a stranger see beauty in the world instead of the darkness surrounding them before you showed up.

You can bake a treat for someone having a rough day, make your sister's bed, or do a job around the house that no one wants to do, but remember that the simple things count to-- open a door for someone, let a friend choose first, or take time to listen to a friend who needs to talk.  Every little kindness counts!
