A friend’s daughter, Lisa, wanted to teach her four-year-old daughter the importance of sharing, particularly at this time of the year. Lisa decided they would donate to the program that gives shoeboxes full of toys and other items to disadvantaged children.
After a day of choosing gifts, wrapping them and putting them into the boxes, my friend asked her granddaughter what she was doing.
The little girl said "Well, Grandma, I’m giving presents to the bad girls and boys."
When asked why she was giving to the bad children the little girl simply replied "Santa gives presents to all the good girls and boys."
I don’t know if this qualifies as an act of kindness, but I think it does show that this young child is very compassionate.
