Bring Back Nice: Kid's Challenge

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a wonderful day!  We are doing pretty good around here.

Today, I'm writing the second post of my Bring Back Nice movement.  You can find the first post HERE.  It's reached a lot of people so far and I'm really excited!  I would love to hear what you all are doing to Bring Back Nice!

One of the main reasons I wanted to start this movement was for my children.  As with all parents, I want my kids to grow up in a better world.  I also want to teach them that it starts with each individual person.  I issued them the same Bring Back Nice challenge that I issued to everyone else.  Do one nice thing a day, everyday.  Then we reflect upon what they did, talk about how it made them feel, and how they think the other person felt when receiving their kindness.

Here are some ideas of what kids can do to Bring Back Nice:
~Give someone a hug
~Pay someone a nice compliment
~Smile at people
~Include classmates in games especially if they are alone
~Open doors for people
~Pick up litter at the park
~Pick flowers from the garden and give them to someone
~Bring an apple to their teacher
~Pick out clothes or toys they've grown out of and donate them
~Share their favorite toy with a sibling
~Draw someone a picture and mail it to them
~Leave a nice note for someone
~Call a relative to say hello

What are some things you think kids can do to Bring Back Nice?  Will you be challenging your children?

Also, please keep in touch with the Bring Back Nice community using the Bring Back Nice Facebook Page.

  1. Love it! We talk about being kind a lot - and how we can be kind to others. I'd love to raise a generation that is less selfish than ours!
