A big part of teaching kids to be friendly is helping them learn to just smile and say, “Hi.” This is said with no expectations. It is said with no pretenses. It is a simple gesture to show kindness and friendliness to others. Today we talked about smiling and saying hi to people. I asked Abby to do this on the playground to five people. As we were out and about, I asked Kenzie to do the same. I think we’ll make this a focus each day this week.
