Morning Time

As your kid starts their day, let them know how glad you are that they are part of your family and what an important place they have within it.

Drive Time

While on the go, ask your kid: “When has someone been kind to you lately? And when were you kind to someone lately?”

Meal Time

Have everyone at the table answer this question at a meal: “Tell us about a time when you included someone who was being left out OR a time when you were being left out, and someone included you.”

Bed Time

Pray for each other: “Jesus, open our eyes to help us see those around us who are being left out. Help us show them Your love by being kind and including them. And when we feel left out, help us remember that You NEVER leave us out.”
