Posted on: February 11th, 2013 by Allissa

care handsAlthough Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to show people we care, thinking about how we treat others can happen year-round.

Here are a few conversation starters to get your family talking about thoughtfulness and kindness.

2-7 Years Old:

  • What was one caring thing that each person sitting at the table has done for you in the last week?
  • If you are sick or sad, what can someone do to care for you?
  • What is one way that you take care of yourself?

8-13 Years Old:

  • Outside of your family, who are the people in the world that care for you during a day or a week?
  • What’s one act of kindness that you have done for someone in the last 6 months?
  • Think about someone your family knows who could use a pick-me-up or a helping hand. Who is it and what could you do for them?

14-100 Years Old:

  • Who is a role model for you as a caring person? How could you incorporate some of their thoughtful behavior into your life?
  • What is being done in your neighborhood to help improve it? What could you do to join the effort?
  • What is one thing you can do for yourself in the next week that would help you take care of yourself?
