Act of Kindness from Katherine

Our family is lucky enough to be safe at home together, for which I am very grateful. Our children are teenagers, for whom staying home without a chance to test their independence with their peers is proving to be a trying and damaging experience.

The school where my teenagers go to school, virtually, recently assigned each student to perform random acts of kindness. I love that school! One of our children took over the other's chores on a difficult day and the other made a point of bringing each person in the family a fizzy water without being asked. These acts of kindness, while small, have helped our family feel appreciated and supported during this difficult time. That is our silver lining, the pandemic has created a space in which to see ways to care for each other that we might not otherwise take the time to notice. Our children's empathy is growing.
