If you're on this website there's a fair chance that you already believe in the magical powers of kindness. The thing is that there's really nothing all that miraculous about it and there's scientific evidence to prove that and why it's so darn good for you!
The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation have done the research which concludes that kindness is "contagious, teachable, and makes you feel all fuzzy inside" and as you'll see by the kindness video by Life Vest Inside, they're not the only ones who have discovered why.
Kindness is biological, it's part of human nature. Even small acts of kindness make us feel more satisfied and content, and as we practice kindness it shifts our nervous system making us happier and healthier.
With all of these wonderful benefits it no wonder parents place kindness and generosity high on the list of values they like to see in their kids. Many parents are keen to see kindness and other important character traits being taught in schools.
Teachers who are positive, thoughtful and compassionate role models and expect their students to behave the same way are crucial for changing the culture of our society. The more exposure children have, the more these desired traits will become a part of their DNA. If your school isn't using kindness resources in the classroom yet, there are a lot of easy things you can do at home to grow kind, caring and compassionate children.
