Hope you're having a great day!
Today I wanted to talk about how important it is for youth to have positive role-models. Whether it's parents, guardians, older siblings, adult family members, teachers, or friends.... we need to model what we want others to follow. Teach by example. Do something kind everyday. Teach with compassion and empathy. Take young children with you when you visit a sick relative. Take them to a soup kitchen to volunteer for the homeless. Write cards together to send to veterans. Mow a neighbor's lawn or shovel their driveway as a gesture of kindness and not for money. I'd like to see people being kind to one another, for a change. It's as simple as that! I think the lyrics in "Show a Little Kindness" say it best...
"Show a little kindness, be a good friend.
Show a little kindness, do it again.
Show a little kindness, and you'll see it makes a happy you and me".
What have you done lately to be a good role- model? What other ideas do you have to teach our youth compassion, empathy, and kindness?
