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.
For your big kids:
3. A Mile in His Shoes
5. Good Luck Charlie: Down a Tree
For your little ones:
1. Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Vol. 1 Ep. 6: Friends Help Each Other
2. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Season 3, Ep. 4: One Bad Apple
3. Arthur, Season 15, Ep. 8: Muffy's Classic Classy Club / Best Enemies
4. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
5. Super Why, Season 1, Ep. 61: The Ugly Duckling: Becoming a Swan
6. The Fox and the Hound
Hopefully our kids will learn that kindness and acceptance are just as important as any academic lessons.
