Fruit of the Spirit: Kindness

Kindness isn’t taught, it’s learned. In order to be kind, you have to experience it at home, and most of that experience is learning it by example.

Here are four ways to bridge the kindness gap:
1. Walk the walk. Children understand kindness through everyday interactions with their parents.
2. Talk the talk — give them kind language. Kindness is the ability to take another person’s perspective and then tailor your words and actions accordingly.
3. Reward big acts of kindness, but don't go overboard. Reward “uncommon acts of kindness”
4. Force them out of their comfort zone to teach empathy. Kids should interact with people from different backgrounds, to learn how to place themselves in someone else’s shoes
