The definition of kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Being a truly kind person is an important quality to have. As a parent, you should help instill this quality in your teen. This week has been dedicated as National Random Acts of Kindness Week. Celebrating is a great way to combat all the negativity, bullying, and provide inclusion.
