How does the series work?

Together, parents and kids discover the 9 essential habits that work together to unlock empathy and inspire kind action. Every Thursday from June 21 — August 16, we’ll send an email that introduces a new kindness habit to practice. Each weekly update includes research-based tips, ideas and activities to help families build the benefits of kindness, together!

Why is empathy important?

Empathy — the ability to understand and care for others — is at the root of kindness. Kids who tune-in to feelings and want to help others are happier, more successful, and more resilient. Empathy reduces conflicts, builds supportive communities, and motivates kids be kind actors, even when nobody's watching :)

"The more you work at being kind
the kinder you'll be."
