Aside from parents who contribute significantly to building good character traits and morals, teachers and schools play a vital part in establishing solid foundations for happy, positive and successful futures. Success in the classroom has been closely linked to emotional well-being, so values and social and emotional education should be a responsibility shared by both parents and schools.
As children learn about their own and other people’s emotions, they gain an appreciation of the benefits of kindness, and soon realize that a positive outlook improves their well-being, boosting self-esteem and their sense of belonging
When we do something kind for someone else, we feel good. On a spiritual level, many people feel that this is because it is the right thing to do and so we’re tapping into something deep and profound inside us that says, “This is who I am.”
