Morning Time

As your kid starts their day, tell them about something they did or said that showed kindness. (Or maybe it was something they chose NOT to say or do.)

Drive Time

While on the go, ask your kid: “What is something kind you’ve seen someone say or do lately—even if it’s online?”

Meal Time

At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What are some ways Jesus showed kindness to people? How can we show people kindness in similar ways?”
