Who were you kind to today? Who was kind to you? Helping your child develop empathy towards others helps them see beyond themselves.

If you don’t know already…Their favorite…Toy, game, color, car, stuffed animal, book, clothes, food, video game, youTuber, tv show, sport, movie, app to play, music… and ask why.The more things you know about your child shows you are interested in them and their life.
