Our mission, vision, PAWS, and Graduate Profile definitely have lots of key words in them. All are essential to the success of every child, and we all do everything we can to teach and reinforce them. But what about kindness? Are we raising our children to be kind? Surely this word is as important, if not more important than the others?
I recently came across a great article about this topic. It asks, “Are you raising nice kids?” I encourage everyone to read it -- it has helpful strategies on things we can all do to promote kindness.
I look forward to discussing these ideas with you. Feel free to reach out any time.
