Be Kind

“BE KIND”…….It sounds so easy to do !!  What  a POWERFUL statement!!   I want to explain to you why these particular words are so important to me .


I am a mom to 3 children and a Nana to 6 grandchildren, with 3 more grands on the way.  My theory as I was raising my own children, and now that I am raising my 2 older granddaughters has always been that you are ALWAYS Kind to others.   That doesn’t always mean others will be kind in return, however, we can only control who we are.  I am the first to admit, that can be a very challenging lesson to teach a child.    It begins when they are babies and we are teaching them to share their toys with other children, or even with us, as we get on the floor and play with them.

 As they grow into toddlers then of course we teach them to “Be Kind” to  others on the playground, at friends houses’, etc.    AS they grew into young adolescent years, we continue those lessons of “Be Kind”.   One of my daughters and now my oldest granddaughter have faced bullying in school.  It is so hard to be kind to somebody when they are bullying you.   However, I tell my girls, you can make a difference in just something as simple as a smile to them as you walk past them in the hallway at school.   Being Kind, doesn’t require a ton of effort and can be demonstrated in so many different ways.

I find  myself quoting this particular statement to my oldest granddaughter multiple times a week right now.    The fact is , we can not control how others behave, but we can control who we are and how we react to those that are mean to us.  I told my oldest granddaughter the other day, that this girl who was mean to her, we have no idea if she is being shown kindness in her own home.    She has the chance to show this little girl even the smallest kindness, by giving her a smile in the hallway as they pass each other, on the playground or in the lunchroom at school.  That is a sad fact of the world we live in today.   

The 2 granddaughters that live with me and we are raising are only 1 year and 18 days apart.    They are 10 and 11 yrs old.    As sisters, let’s just say they are not always “kind” to each other.    At least once a day, they are in some sort of squabble with each other.  When I put this shirt on the other day, they were the 1st ones to say , “Hey Nana, that is what you tell us all the time!!….Be Kind”   I couldn’t help but giggle to myself as I answered them, Yes honey, that is exactly what I tell you.

    I love this tee, and when people see it, I think it gives them a nudge to remember to be kind that day. I feel for your granddaughter getting bullied. I got bullied in school, girls would push me, take my hat and throw it, once I got jumped in the girl’s room. I was popular with my own little group, and could never figure out why some picked on me, it could be I was so little, only 4’10” an easy mark,
