Parents have the power in their hands to transform the future of their children by helping them to live in a friendly and happy family environment. Children learn to understand the world initially from their families. Parents transfer knowledge through their example; if children see social and positive behaviors in the adults around them, they will repeat them.
Teach children to be kind and compassionate with others through a smile, be good-natured, help others, generate empathy with others by putting themselves in their shoes, and keep a positive attitude. Explain to them that any decision affects their lives. Teaching them kindness through an example, such as growing seeds to reap the harvest, is an act of love that allows us to adopt positive behaviors for life.
Kindness is a personality trait linked to friendship. Individuals with high kindness traits tend to avoid confrontations and care about others. It helps to neutralize negative thoughts and generate trust - crucial for a person to be honest and fair; sincerity - does not manipulate others, showing honesty, altruism, help others; modesty - people show themselves as they are; empathy - allows people to put themselves in the shoes of the other, compassionate.
Simkin et al. (2012) explain that a characteristic of kindness is helping others. That should coincide with certain ease in interpersonal relationships, friendship, and solidarity. Consequently, to broaden the social field and support it among people with these characteristics.
A way to increase courtesy in children is by teaching them what friendship is, grown as a flower, fed with politeness, and watered without any hope of personal gain or interest. That way, personal relationships bloom. People can have assertive communication, create empathy, are not selfish, and show compassion to others.
