It’s no secret that you are raising your kids in turbulent times.  So much negativity and uncertainty surrounding their everyday lives. Kindness quotes for kids are a helpful way to remind our kids of what’s important.

The Mayo Clinic Health System Website says “Kindness has been shown to increase self-esteem, empathy, and compassion, and improve mood. It can decrease blood pressure and cortisol, a stress hormone, which directly impacts stress levels.”

Sometimes it’s hard to realize the many different ways that we need to teach our kids to choose kindness.

I had a learning experience that really opened my eyes about teaching my kids to be kind in more in-depth ways.

A couple had moved into our neighborhood, and they had some bad habits.  Some of the young kids (thankfully not mine) snuck over one night and wrote on their driveway with sidewalk chalk that they were bad people because of these habits.  It was heartbreaking to see that these kids would have done that.  These were great people that did not deserve it. And they really were great kids with good parents.  But I realized at that moment that yes, we parents had taught our kids not to do these things, but in the process, we forgot to also teach that just because somebody does something different than what we do, it does not make them a bad person.

I have noticed other examples of similar situations, and now I always try to remember that when I teach my children of things I do want them to do…or don’t want them to do, that I always remind them that we still love and respect those who choose differently.

Here are some Choose Kindness Quotes for Kids that you can use as daily reminders to love and serve, not only others but themselves as well. 💗
