Raising kind children...

Hello Silver Hill Community!

I can't believe how fast this fall has fallen away...I suppose that old adage certainly rings true- Time flies when you're having fun! I really am enjoying this school in so many ways. The administration and staff are not only talented and fun, but so very hard working. The children are bright, clever and funny. And the families are warm and supporting. What a gift it is to be a part of Silver Hill.

With all of that said, and with holidays ahead, I feel that it is good practice to be reflective of not only all that we have but all that we can be. Becoming mindful of how we treat one another is always going to be important in life. As a child, teen, young person or older adult: Kindness Matters.

However, I do realize that facilitating this process with our children can be tricky...

I welcome you to click on the link below for a short, yet helpful piece. I believed it opens up the conversation for us to consider all of the ways we can plant the seeds of kindness and begin to teach these skills. And let us remember that all of our children need support in learning these things, they are not simply a given...Enjoy!
