Thinking back to your younger years, who in your life helped you to learn kindness? For me it was my parents. Since we are approaching Father's Day, I'd like to reminisce about how I learned kindness from my father.
I was blessed to grow up in a home where I witnessed my father showing family, friends and strangers acts of kinds quite often.
If I think back to how my father showed kindness, it was usually through helping people. There are several memories that stick out in my mind. I remember—
No matter what you do in life, someone is always watching. You are a father or mother figure to children in your life. I believe children learn through our actions more than they do by our words. Show kindness to all of those around you and teach children how to be kind not only to friends and family but to strangers.
I would love to hear how your father or someone important in your life taught you kindness.
