Kindness is a type of behaviour marked by acts of generosity, consideration, or concern for others, without expecting praise or reward. There are many ways you can help children to live this value at home. Examples include:

  • Being kind yourself. Children see and hear everything you do.  Talk about kindness at the end of each day, telling your child about the kind things you did and asking what they did to be kind that day.
  • Being kind together. Help children understand how good it feels to make a positive difference. As a family, look for ways to support local charities, friends or neighbours.
