Corona virus, or COVID-19 per the professionals, has interrupted our life in a way that nothing else in our lifetime has done. I remember exactly where I was when the 9/11 attacks happened, and those images are forever etched in my brain. And now we are all being bombarded with new news every hour, with major life changes happening with each breaking piece, and I believe that this season will forever be etched in our brains. It is important now more than ever to use this time to teach our families, our kids, COMPASSION, in the midst of uncertain times.
Love has not been cancelled. Kindness has not been cancelled. Joy and Generosity have not been cancelled, and I believe that we can access all of this daily, DESPITE the crazy Corona is bringing to us, through Compassion.
So I put together these 10 specific At-Home ways to teach your kids compassion, and show compassion as a family during these uncertain times. Most all of them can be done within the comfort of your quarantined home, while still recognizing the misfortune of others and acting on a way to relieve that.
We need each other during uncertain times. And implementing these 5 minutes acts of compassion in your home is just one small way that we can be a part of the kindness solution during COVID-19.
If you’re looking for other ways to talk about virtues such as Honesty, Generosity, or Joy (plus many more!), check out my monthly virtues guide. We spend 10 minutes every morning as a family chatting through one virtue theme a month, and it’s just a small way we add intention in our home! Click on the link below to see more!
