We, adults, often forget of so many things we can learn from children. One of those things, that often comes so naturally to them, is being kind and empathetic. Kids just can’t look away when they see someone in pain and do their best to cheer them up. Recently a video went viral showing an elementary school-aged boy, who happens to have Down’s syndrome, consoling his classmate with autism, which reminded us how easy it is to be kind to one another.
