How You Can Become A Care Champion: 20 Caring Tips For Kids
Parents: These tips are written for young readers. If your child does not yet read, explain the tips and talk about them together.
Instructions: Try one a day. If you are training for the gold, take two or more. You can enhance them, share them, and get a friend to try one. These tips are grouped by similar activities, so mix them up for variety or run right through them from one to 30, and then reverse the order.
1. Write a note for someone in your house and tell him or her something special. To jazz it up, add decorations.
2. Tell your mom you love her. Try this three different ways without using the word love!
3. Try #2 without using any words. What else works besides a hug or a kiss?
4. Make a happy unbirthday present for someone you care about. This can be a friend or someone in your family.
5. Do something that you know will make someone you love smile.
6. If a question asked could use a “yes, please” as an answer, see how many times in a day you can answer in that way. Give “yeah” a rest for a day.
7. When asked a question requiring “no,” see how many times you can manage to say, “no, thank you.” Go for 10 today.
8. Put a list of your chores on the fridge. One day, without being asked, do them and put a check by the chores you’ve done. See how many days you can keep this up and checked. This is guaranteed to wow your parents.
9. Smile at someone you know. When they smile back, tip your head to let them know you got the smile.
10. Take something to school, for the whole class, that makes the day special – flowers, a poem or brownies. (Check it out with the teacher first to make sure it’s OK.)
11. When you first wake up, before you move, think of one good thing about today. Got two? How many can you share at breakfast?
12. At dinner, ask each person at the table how his or her day was.
13. Call one of your grandparents, a favorite relative or a special friend just to ask how their day was.
14. Make something wonderful to decorate the place where your mom or dad work.
15. When you see a neighbor or someone you know, use their name. Say, “Hi, Mr. Adams.” (Well, only if their name is Adams, otherwise use their real name!)
