Netflix Kindness Punch Box & 12 Titles That Promote Acceptance #StreamTeam

As my son gets ready to go back to school, I hope to get him prepared with everything he needs to know. He's already gotten the basics of reading, math and writing down so this year I wanted to focus on his social skills. The age of 6 years is a good time to reinforce how he should act with his classmates, teachers and anyone he meets.

Note: I'm part of Netflix #StreamTeam program. While I have been compensated to share monthly information and news about their service, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

One of the lessons I want to refresh with him is how to be kind. Which for a 6 year old isn't always easy. At this age he still has some "me, me, me" tendencies that he needs gentle coaching away from. This month I plan on using the Kindness Punch Box suggested by Netflix.

The Kindness Punch Box is really a simple idea but is a great way to encourage your child to do random acts of kindness. With the Kindness Punch Box, your kids can break through each tissue-papered hole to reveal a kindness challenge, like smiling at everyone you meet or making a sweet treat to share with your neighbors. There's lots of little ways kids can do a kind act that has big results.

Another way to help kids learn the lesson of being kind is by watching these 12 Netflix titles that promote kindness and acceptance.

  1. I love Radio! I've seen that movie a bazillion times. I'm kind of surprised that the Sandra Bullock football movie (drawing a blank here...) isn't on the list.

  24. I like the selections you've used for good examples to teach the lesson. I'm curious about Mulan, I know it's old now, but we haven't seen it (yet). If it teaches a good lesson on kindness, that's an added plus.
