I work with little kids almost all of the time, so obviously I ask them a lot of questions. Most of the time I ask them about their favorite movies, favorite things to eat, or what they want to be when they grow up, but last week I asked all of the kids in my swimming lessons what they think it means to be nice. With today's news about the violent attacks in Paris, it seems like a good time to talk about being nice to each other. So here is a little bit of advice from a couple of kids about what it means to be a nice person.
"Ummm......sometimes I help my mom with stuff".
-Abigail, age 4
"Yeah, sometimes I clean the TV room for my mom".
-Oliver, age 4
"If someone wants to play with you, you should say yes.
And if someone falls down, you should help them up".
-Lucas, age 6
"You should say nice things to people. And if you see
someone who looks like they're bored, you
should ask them to play".
-Ramsay, age 6
"IF YOU FALL DOWN, YOU SHOULD HELP SOMEONE UP".
-Anderson, age 4
"Ummm.........not saying pee or poop to someone".
-Sophia, age 3
"Being nice is just saying nice things!"
-Lola, age 4
