Has someone ever said something to you that hurt your feelings or made you feel like you aren’t good enough? Unfortunately, most of us have gone through a painful experience like this, and oftentimes, it sticks with us.
Now, think about a time when someone said something kind to you or about you. Did it boost your day or make you feel special? Chances are, it did. Imagine if each of us put a little more effort into random acts of kindness, what an incredible impact we could make on the people around us—and the whole world!
In honor of National Bullying Prevention Month, we want to invite you to take part in 31 Simple Acts of Kindness for kids and their families. Use this calendar to focus on one simple act that you and your child can do to spread kindness in your community and help instill the power of compassion in those around you. This calendar can be used for any month of the year—just start on the first calendar square at the start of each month.
We’d love to hear your stories and the impact you’ve made, so share your experiences using #AgainstBullying and #K12DrawsTheLine. We each have a role to play in putting a stop to bullying, and it starts with kindness.
