Practicing kindness is selfish; it gives you the most good.
There is much talk of Random Acts of Kindness and that is good. But a greater good comes to you when you practice Deliberate Kindness.
Parenting tip one: Manners teach kindness, so teach your children manners.
Parenting tip two; Condemn cruelty when you see cruel behavior. Point out cruel jokes, cruel acts.
Parenting tip three: Punish children for deliberate acts of cruelty.
Parenting tip four: Reward with a thank you your child’s acts of kindness.
Parenting tip five: Teach your children to give to the needy. Three year olds love putting coins in various donations boxes. Older children can give gently used toys, coats, other items to various charities or time at soup kitchens.

All the handouts and poster coaches for this course are being posted at the store so you can download them for free. A poster coach is like a face-to-face coach; all serve as practice reminders, some teach you the exercises needed to stay strong.
To use one, after down loading it from the store, print it up preferably in cardstock and color, then post it where you will see it as you go about your day.
Apologies if you cannot find one. I am a Jill of all in this business, so some things take longer than others. If something used here isn’t posted yet, you will find lots of other offerings including inspirational quotes or more EFTI exercises. In time all will be posted.
DAILY PROMPT The Object of My Dejection – Tell us about the object of your dejection — something you made, a masterpiece unfinished, or some sort of project that failed to meet your expectations. What did you learn from the experience? How would you do things differently next time?
How this fits in with today’s EFTI Post: I was raised to think poorly of money-grubbing. So I have consistently under sold myself and Emotional Fitness Training.
I have lead a good life, but EFTI will probably be buried with me and I wish I had done better selling it. A bit more money would have made it a viable business that could live on.
That said I am still trying to find a some legacy keepers or investors who will work to keep it going for at least a few more years. Interested?
