Grandparenting Tips For Teaching Kindness

teaching kindness to grandchildren

With the election fast approaching, it seems the world is full of the mindless shenanigans and political ramblings these days, and right along with all the un-kind comments. I certainly don’t like to get into the middle of all the heated debates. I’d much rather focus on pleasant thoughts and think about kindness in the world; which brings me to writing this blog post. 😉 <3

I know that it’s my job (as a grandmother), to always offer grandparenting tips to my precious grand blessings.

Well, this time, I want to focus on teaching my grandchildren about kindness. However, I do realize that my son and daughter-in-law have always taught them well with the (please and thank you) and holding the door for people, etc. My grands are super nice and kind in that regard. They also are growing up fast. And they sound so “grown up” when they talk. Grandma is so very proud of them!! <3 <3 Love them so!

I want to take teaching kindness a little further and express ways they can show or things they can do for showing kindness to others.

teach your grandchildren kindness

However, first, I wanted to share with you a few “kindness quotes” from https://www.brainyquote.com. 😉

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see Mark Twain

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone Audrey Hepburn

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given Mother Teresa

He that has done you a kindness will be more ready to do you another, than he whom you yourself have obliged Benjamin Franklin
