My oldest son asked me tonight at dinner, “what does it mean to be kind?”
Without much thought I rattled off a few ways I thought he should act towards his younger brothers and his friends at school:
1. Be considerate of others feelings.
2. Use kind and polite words.
3. Don’t be rude.
4. Talk to someone when no one is talking to them.
5. Being nice even when the other person can’t be nice back.
He said, meh. And then went on his way.
Have you ever noticed how many questions kids ask?
They ask tons of questions. All the time. Doesn’t matter where you are, doctor’s office, oil change, grocery line, etc. I could be on the phone with the President of Mars, my sons would be like, “can I just ask a quick question?”
But I am on the phone with Mars.
