Such Is the Way of Goodness... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

Such Is the Way of Goodness...

by Brian McDermott on 10/27/16

This is a great story about the power of kindness -- a bit of an antidote, perhaps, for getting through the final ugly unkind days of the 2016 U.S. election season.

As Steve Hartman, the storyteller, puts it, "Acts of great kindness are done without expectation... but such is the way of goodness. The more likely you are to live for others, the more likely you are to live happily ever after."

If you are a parent looking for ways to help your kids come away from the election vitriol with as few scars as possible, check out How Kindness Can Win the Election, an article by Dr. Jenny Friedman, executive director of Doing Good Together, an organization focused on empowering families to raise caring, engaged children.

She says, "The spiteful, unfiltered rhetoric of this 2016 election has made me more concerned than ever about the decline in compassion among young people. The decline is becoming pronounced not just on TV but in classrooms, where teachers report more hate language and an increase in bullying as kids model what they’re hearing from candidates and their surrogates. Children, especially children of immigrant families and children of color, are expressing fear about their safety – and their families’ futures."

The article includes concrete things parents can do to keep children focused on their higher angels.
