Kindness activates the joyful area of the brain, making you feel happy. And when it comes to children, children that are happy are able to increase their feelings of belonging and self-esteem.

But not all acts of kindness come naturally for children, especially when they’re young. But teaching them about kindness when they’re children establishes those tendencies from a young age, making it easier for them to spread kindness when they’re older.

Early childhood education also plays an important role in developing kindness. When your child is ready to start preschool or pre-kindergarten, sign them up at Discovery Tree Academy in Springville and Payson!

Kids love to play. It's in their nature. Of course, there is an abundant amount of learning in play, but kids usually don't notice this, nor do they care. To them, examining worms crawl in the dirt is just fun, watching the leaves fall in autumn and then raking them up and jumping in them is the best game, and climbing a tree is just a way to get a better vantage point. However, when your kids are stuck in your home with a bunch of pent-up energy, you need to find creative ways to channel that into something useful.
