Check out this adorable video introducing this important initiative:

In a nationwide survey of 1,000 parents, 67% of parents with children aged 3-7 were worried that their children would be bullied at some point. A survey by Sprout found that 83% of parents were concerned that their preschoolers would be bullied or might bully others. Simple acts like encouraging children to share a box of crayons or help clean up a spill can spur them to build empathy and think about other people’s feelings. As parents, we can start now by encouraging our kids in these small acts of kindness.
I hope you and your child will add your kind act to the count at Sprout’s “Kindness Counts” website. Help them reach 1 million acts of kindness -- and defeat bullying!
