Raising kind kidsd
The Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) is trying to promote their “kindness ambush” project which aims to make Singaporeans aware of the importance of appreciating those who have been kind to them. By doing this, SKM hopes to encourage people to practice more acts of kindness.
According to Channel News Asia, about 45,000 stalks of yellow daisies will be distributed in several locations on 13th November, 2009. This is to commemorate World Kindness Day wherein anybody in the public can take a flower and give it to someone who has been kind to them.
Children at several primary schools in Singapore will do their share of “kindness ambush” as they will make and give folded daisies to people who have been kind to them in school. I am truly glad that there are projects such as this in Singapore.
I think it is a great way to teach our children to stop complaining about those people who have wronged them and to start being thankful to all those who have been very kind to them. Sometimes it is so easy for them to say that no one in Singapore is kind. If we remind them to be mindful and attentive, I am sure that they will be able to find someone who has always been doing kind acts for them.
As parents, how can we follow through the “kindness ambush” project so that this “kindness appreciation” drive will become a lifestyle for our kids?
