It can be challenging to guide children into understanding how to define and integrate the character-building value of KINDNESS. Kindness is one of those broad general words like “nice.” Through the creative arts, family and teacher role modeling as well as choices in specific school curriculum, we can teach the true meaning of kindness. We can encourage kindness towards one self and with each other within every environment. We can encourage self-motivated “random acts of kindness” in all ages. With ourselves as role models, by using specific books, poetry, storytelling, creative writing, meaningful song choices, rhythmic rap, role play, verbal encouragement and awareness/consciousness teaching, children will learn to live the true meaning of the word, kindness. My concert, “Peace Begins with You and Me” teaches this specific value, and I look forward to sharing my meaningful program with you in the near future.
