5 Ways to Help Your Kids Choose To Be Nice for Back-to-School

1. Show manners to the bus driver.

Good Morning!

Good Morning!


Remind your son and/or daughter to say “good morning” to their bus driver when they get on the bus and to say “thank you” when they’re exiting. A little kindness can go a long way to brighten someone’s day!

2. Remember the Golden Rule.

Don't forget!

Don’t forget!


Treat others the way you want to be treated. It’s as easy as that! Sometimes, kids need a reminder, though.


3. Bring the teacher a gift.

Mmm, apples.

Mmm, apples.


Apples are the go-to for teachers, but you can try something different, too! We love these DIY gifts for teachers. Anything to show some appreciation for the work they do.


4. Donate old school clothes and supplies.



This year, instead of throwing out school clothes that don’t fit and outdated school supplies, suggest to your child that they donate their old things to children in need!

5. Try to make a new friend.

Friends forever!

Friends forever!


Maybe there’s a new kid in town. Or maybe someone in the class is shy. Suggest to your son/daughter that they reach out to make a new friend!
