Kindness is contagious
Did you know that 17 February is Random Acts of Kindness Day? It’s a 24-hour period of bringing people joy and happiness around the world. We should all strive to be kind to others all the time, but why not make an extra effort on this day? An act of kindness always spreads. You may not see it spreading straight away or realise it is happening, but the small moments of kindness are what counts.
With Valentine’s Day and Random Acts being so close together, it’s a great time to break out of your comfort zone to help someone else. As parents, we often say we are too busy, but the truth is we should promote kindness daily. We should invest this time with our children and make sure that they are aware of the people around them. We often push “stranger danger” yet forget to tell them, “Don’t be afraid to smile and say hi to people,” as each smile really does have an impact.
