Teaching kindness to our children is essential. Teaching our children these vital core values shapes them into their own character and helps them to gain a deeper awareness to develop these positive traits. Here are some tips from Warm-Hearted Walrus to help teach children kindness:
1. Be a role model for your children
2. Communicate with your children what kindness looks like, sounds like and feel like
3. Create a chart together on kind things the children can do
4. Help around the house and in the yard
5. Allow them to feel kindness so they in turn share it with others
6. Let them hear you share compliments to others
7. Volunteer in the community
Write a letter to Warm-Hearted Walrus and tell this character what you do that is kind. Mail to:

Please be sure to include a self addressed envelope for a reply. Let's be Pen Pals. This activity helps your child to think about what they do that is kind, or who they know that is kind and how they can be kind. Plus, it helps build literacy and communication skills!
