Add Kindness to Your Child's Chore List at an Early Age; Here's Why!

The earlier you expose your children to kindness, empathy and random acts of kindness, the better chance you have that it will become a natural part of who they are. For example, their chore list could look something like this: 

  • Make bed. 
  • Feed cat. 
  • Hug your brother.
  • Read your sister her favorite book. 
  • Call Grandma and tell her a joke. 

This will not only make others around your child feel good, but he or she will learn, at an early age, that making others happy will also make themselves happy. This has caused us to change the words "Chore List" to "Integrity List."
