2. Good deeds make us FEEL good
If your children are anything like mine, then they will take the video (from last post) and the concept of kindness coming round to us very literally! I remember some time ago, my son did something good and then expected something good to happen to him soon after and in a similar way too!
As well as explaining that it may not come straight after or in the way we expect, this may also be a good time to introduce the concept of doing good makes you FEEL good too, and this in itself may be the goodness that is promised to us. Here is a lovely video to make us understand that…
P.S. After watching the video, my daughter decided to write a few letters of her own! Here are two of them…to Africa and Japan.
Did you watch the video with your children? Would love to hear how they reacted/felt?
P.P.S. An idea has sprung from this…stay tuned Inshallah
