Nope this is not a homage to the 80's show Heart to Heart ... No Robert Wagner or Mysteries here(loved that show btw!). I'm Hosting a workshop for "Respect for All Week" It's an effort to encourage kids to be buddies not bullies. We all can use a lesson in being humble, kinder and compassionate from time to time. We get stuck on "why" children do something, instead of "what" we can do to help children manage their inner self so we see less and less of cruel outward behavior. Understanding how to meet a child where they live...what makes them tick. Everyone wants to be loved...bottom line, but not everyone knows how to give or get it!
A Tried and true way to get people being more friendly is a gesture of kindness or appreciation...specially made for them. When that happens to someone unexpectedly, sometimes they open up...you get to see the inner core of the person that's underneath all the ruff and tuff exterior. Below are a few of the treats I'm suggesting as home made gifts that I hope parents can easily make with their children..almost anyone really. Using a few ingredients that aren't very costly and we sometimes have in our pantry or refrigerator. Inexpensive, Accessible ingredients and supplies.
