This afternoon my kindergartener came home from school in a cheerful mood. When I asked him how his day went, he said "good". Then he said, "Want to know why it was good?" I said yes and he proceeded to tell me that he was complimented by two teachers today and that the bus monitor smiled at him. He determined that all of this happened because he was "good".
Out of all of the things that happened today at school, the kindness of his teachers and bus monitor made the biggest impression. I hope that when I was teaching impressionable young adolescents that I was such a positive influence in their daily lives and now I am reminded of how important a smile and kind word is to a young child. I have three adorable little boys who need to hear how much I love them, daily. They need to see me smile and laugh more. The disciplining and redirecting has to occur, but each day should be filled with positive words and hugs and kisses too.
