October is Kindness Month
Last Updated by
October is the MONTH OF KINDNESS! Help us spread kindness throughout the month of October and beyond with the Detroit PBS Kids Kindness Challenge! We wear sweaters to warm our bodies. When you are kind, it warms the heart. We challenge you to do something kind for someone else this month. Take a picture of you doing your act of kindness or of you wearing a sweater and share it with us on Facebook or Twitter using hashtag #KindnessChallenge. You can also add a Kindness Challenge frame to your profile picture to let everyone know that you're spreading kindness!
Resources and Activities:
Kindness is a learned behavior, but the inability to understand others feelings can get in the way. Here are 10 ways to activate their kindness.

Show your child how to scan the room or recess yard for kids who might be left out and include them by seeking them out with friendly invitation.
Can your family help us celebrate kindness by completing kind acts each day this month?
Empowering kids to act as “includers” helps them both in school and beyond.
