The story takes the child through a series of questions that helps them focus on their own feelings and then encourages them to send loving kindness out to various people in their lives. Once you have talked to your children about their kind thoughts and words, their acts of kindness come from a positive foundation.

You can see a full schedule of the posts in this series by visiting the main Random Acts of Kindness Challenge page. You are so right about the language we use with our children when our goal is to foster kindness and love!
Each month, a blogger shares the random acts of kindness they have committed with their little ones. Giselle draws from her experiences as a teacher, traveler, yogi, and mom to write her stories found at Kids Yoga Stories or on Amazon worldwide.


For example, you might have a ritual at dinnertime where each family member expresses what he or she is grateful. Children are spontaneous creatures, and starting them out with random kindness might entice them to do more.
You can visit the Random Acts of Kindness page to see previous installments of this series. I’ve been asking myself how we can cultivate kindness into our everyday lives no matter where we are or what we are doing. The meditation recommends starting by thinking of yourself as happy and healthy, then send loving kindness to a loved one, then someone you don’t know very well, next to someone who is a negative source in your life, and lastly to all living beings. Acts of kindness can be directed at ourselves, others around us, or our natural surroundings. Encourage them to hold open a door for someone, thank a police officer or veteran, or buy flowers for a neighbor.


And yes, kids are some of the most-giving people, hardly ever asking for anything in return. Imaginations: Fun Relaxation Stories and Meditations for Kids has a lovely loving-kindness visualization story that you can read to your children.
For example, here are Fifteen Acts of Kindness to inspire you, including giving yourself some “me” time, sending thank you cards, and committing to earth-friendly practices.
Their acts of kindness can be practiced throughout the year, not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
