Home » Kindness Blog » 3 lessons from talking about kindness

After Team Time for Kindness took part in the University of Reading Community Festival last month, I reflected on how joyful the experience was. We spent all day talking to festival visitors about kindness. In total we collected about 50 stories and drawings.

There were 3 things that came through as clear lessons:

  • Telling positive stories comes with an energy that inspires others. Although it was a tiring day, it was also very energising to share so much positivity with people.
  • Offering different ways to share stories opened up the activity and gave people a starting point – some drew pictures, some wrote post-it notes and some just wanted to have a chat with us.
  • Children are prepared to describe themselves in ways that adults aren’t – there was very little embarrassment about describing themselves as kind, and rightly so!
