To be kind is to be nice and caring towards the people around you. Showing kindness to others is something that everyone should try and do. If you show kindness to others it is very likely that they will show kindness to you too.

You can be kind in school by simply saying ‘good morning’ to your teachers and classmates or seeing if someone is okay if they look unhappy. Even smiling can show kindness; it makes you seem happy and friendly plus, it takes more muscles to smile than it does to frown!

You never know how an act of kindness could brighten someone’s day!

Parents should always lead by example; be kind and motivate their children to be kind too. Children often pick up on things that happen around them; if parents show kindness it is likely that with time it will become natural for their children too.
