4 ways to teach kids about kindness this Valentine’s Day

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

Celebrate the month of love by sharing kindness with your family, friends and community! Here are four simple ways to spread kindness this Valentine’s.

  1. Take part in Random Acts of Kindness Day on Feb. 17. Spend the day intentionally looking for ways to pay kindness forward in your community and reflect on how spreading kindness made you feel.
  2. Our hospital workers are overwhelmed and exhausted. Help lift spirits at local hospitals by putting together a snack basket, donating a meal or writing a thank you note to show your appreciation to these frontline heroes working hard to care for others in need.
  3. Share love and affirmation with your family members. Create a jar for each member in your household and fill them up with special notes and uplifting words that reaffirm a positive perspective and highlight individual strengths.
  4. Share stories of kindness by reading inspiring children’s books like The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig, Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss or The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
