ADD KINDNESS TO YOUR CAR RIDES

Do you spend large chunks of your day driving your kids from place to place? Turn off the radio and use this time to practice kindness! Here are some ways to weave big-hearted conversations and projects into your travel time. First, print and carry our list of 29 conversation starters. Car rides are often the best time for “big talks.” Also take along a few homeless care kits for anyone you encounter that might need some comfort…and cheer.

Talk to your child: If your children share stories of problems with teachers or classmates during your drives, acknowledge their feelings but also encourage them to spend a little time imagining the other person’s perspective.
Books to share: Choose a few kindness-themed books to keep in the backseat for your kids to look at.
