Teaching Kindness

Show children how to handle disagreements with friends.

  1. Print out the page and read it to kids.
  2. Ask, “What if you were angry and hit your friend? How do you think your friend would feel? What could you do instead?” and “What is something nice you’ve done for a friend (share a toy, give a hug)? How do you think your friend felt when you did that?” Thinking about others’ feelings (and how they can change others’ feelings) helps kids learn empathy.
  3. Let kids color the page.
