Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
As parents, we want our children to thrive in kindness, no matter their age. Families of Character has created the Thrive Journal: Kindness for parents who would like to take their children on a journey to grow in the character strengths of self-control, gratitude, and generosity.
Our new spiral bound makes it easier than ever to start and continue the daily practice of intentional kindness. Throughout the 90 days of growth, you will teach your children how to make self-control, gratitude, and generosity a daily habit that will have years of impact. The Kindness Journal has everything you need to jumpstart your parenting strategy in a whole new way with daily guided practice, enriching stories, and tools for the whole family.
Build Kindness through these Character Strengths:
Self-Control: Managing our desires and wants in order to achieve a greater good and meet our life goals. Building self-control not only gives us willpower, but it also grows self-esteem. In today's day and age, with technology at the fingertips of our children, this virtue is imperative to develop.
Gratitude: Gratitude is also called thankfulness, but it’s not the same thing as saying “thank you.” It is having a thankful disposition of mind and heart. If we have gratitude, it can transform our entire outlook on life.
Generosity: Giving good things to others freely and abundantly—not just money, but also time, knowledge, and skills. It's also the way in which we give...willingly and cheerfully. True happiness comes from giving of ourselves to others.
