Did you know that Sunday was National Parents Day? It really should have been a national holiday, but we’ll settle for a congressional resolution.
Hat’s off and hi-fives to all the parents out there doing whatever it takes for their kiddos! The juggle is real.
Any parent will tell you (or shout from the rooftops): a little bit goes a long way. So to celebrate the occasion, we went through our Summer Kindness Series submissions from families to highlight some of the brilliant ways kids are showing their parents a little TLC this summer.
We’re about halfway through the series and we’ve heard from hundreds of families from the U.S., Canada, China, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, the U.K., and more. We’ve seen entries in English, Spanish, and Arabic! And while families are sharing all the ways they’re practicing kindness this summer, some kids got down to business about what parents really want.
So parents, no matter where you are in the world, put your feet up. This one’s for you 😉
1) IKEA furniture assembly FTW!
2) But, regular chores are also #trending.
3) This one just made us cry.
“One day at my daughter’s daycare, as I was picking up the girls, my oldest daughter handed me a picture that she had drawn of their mother. She told me that I could “hold mommy” when I was crying. My daughter knows that I’m in pain and showed me empathy and compassion.” – Tony H., California
4) Lots of sibling un-rivalry
5) But nothing beats quality time.
6) Or some creature comfort.
7) Because Kindness Rocks.
