As you may know, teaching kindness is one of the best ways to guide our kids towards happier lives. New research is showing that kindness has many other benefits as well.
According to this new study, children who show a high degree of "pro-social behavior" (cooperation, helpfulness, empathy, etc.) go on to have better educational outcomes and job prospects. Such kids will also be less likely to have legal problems and mental illness as they grow up. This research adds to the growing body of evidence linking kindness with emotional well-being and success in life.
By teaching kindness to the kids in our lives, we'll help them become happier people. We'll also be doing our part to create a safer, more prosperous, and more sustainable future.
