Kindness matters! Especially with ourselves.
When Esperanza finds a heart-shaped rock, she sees it as a reminder to spread kindness and love in the world. But when the school play doesn’t go the way she’d hoped, will she remember to show it to herself?
We talk to kids a lot about how to be friends to others, but not much about how to be friends to themselves. Yet self-acceptance and positive self-talk help them build emotional resilience, growth mindset, and well-being.
Listening with my Heart reminds us of the other golden rule-- to treat ourselves with the same understanding and compassion we give to others. It also touches on the universal themes of friendship and empathy. Includes kid-friendly mindfulness and self-compassion activities.
