Parents and Professionals – Great Resource for Developing Empathy, Altruism, Social Skills, and Reducing Bullying!
Kids Learn Their Real Power to Create a Kinder, More Peaceful World!
The Helping, Sharing and Caring Workbook guides children to:
- Learn and practice altruism
- Gain social skills for making friends
- Stop bulling behaviors
- Get along better with others
The 60 child-friendly activities in this workbook are designed to teach specific behaviors that express altruism, an unselfish interest in the welfare of others. Children learn to value and practice altruistic attitudes and behaviors towards others and themselves. They learn how their own caring thoughts and actions help make their immediate world, and the world in general, a better place.
Activities, games, and puzzles center around eight areas of:
- Good Manners
- Social Skills
- Safety and Health
- Doing the Right Thing
- Helping Others
Each section of the book teaches the importance of the particular topic area and specific ways to express this virtue through thoughts, words, and actions. Children learn the words, behaviors, and thought patterns that help to create an altruistic society.
Child-friendly and engaging social skills activities worksheets include: “The Good Manners Machine,” “The Generosity Club,” “Help-O-Meter,” “Lean Gene and His Cleaning Machine,” “Rest and Relaxation Soup,” “The Kindness Chain,” and more.
