Kids are back in school. Every 7 minutes one of them will be bullied, according to NVEEE - National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment. Bullied students tend to grow up more socially anxious, with less self-esteem and requiring more mental health services throughout life. In addition, students face addiction to electronic devices and are learning to shelter in place due to an increase in school shootings. What are the long-term effects on the kids as a result of our turbulent culture?
Now comes an alternative to that negative programming from a Mom's Choice Gold Award-winning online neighborhood with a first-time offering to help kids and their caregivers. The colorful characters who live in Shady Pines Story Town entertain young children with fun-filled stories that have positive life lessons sprinkled in. If you have kids of your own, or care for someone else’s kids, there is now a free resource to download called “The Kindness Kit for Kids and Caregivers” that includes stories, prompting questions, and offline activities.
The Shady Pines Kindness Kit includes a two-part featured story called, "Get Un-Plugged." The mayor of Shady Pines has offered a $500 reward and a winner's certificate to anyone who comes up with the best ideas to help people limit their screen time. Wait 'til you see who wins! Prompting questions are included so the adult can have a conversation with their young reader about the featured topic. An offline activity allows for the interaction to continue.
