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: When we do the things we are responsible for, it gives us willpower. Building self-control grows self-esteem enormously. Self-control is the habit by which one says yes or no to one’s desire for pleasure in pursuit of worthy goals.
Gratitude: Gratitude is also called thankfulness, but it’s not the same thing as saying “thank you.” Saying that phrase is an important first step in learning to be grateful, but gratitude is much greater than that. Gratitude is a thankful state of mind and way of life. If we have gratitude, it can transform our entire outlook on life.
Generosity: Generosity is giving good things to others freely and abundantly. Not just money, but time, knowledge, and skills can be given. Only you know why you give, but other people are the beneficiary. But if your reason for giving is good, that gift ennobles you. So, generosity is a character strength which can make one feel good while it also helps other people.
