Everyone Needs a Little Kindness



I Corinthians 13:4

Children can be taught the idea of empathy from an early age. They will copy the behaviour of others when it comes to acts of kindness and service. If you show them ways to serve and help others they will learn by your example what it means to be a caring human being and how important this is in becoming part of our community. Being able to understand what it's like to be in another person's shoes can help them grow into a more empathetic and understanding person. Children can be encouraged early to help make the world a better place.
