PARENTS: We hope that KINDNESS COUNTS in Natick! provides an opportunity for you to communicate to your child your family’s values regarding kindness, respect, tolerance, empathy, and compassion. Talk with your child about these issues and encourage him or her to write or create something that expresses their voice on the subject. This can be about themselves, their friends, an acquaintance, or someone they have never met. Encourage them to be creative and have fun!
