A few days ago, I received my TeachKind materials. I should have added them to my Top 10 Tips To Get Your Kids To Eat Fruits and Veggies but I had forgotten about them as the materials took so long to arrive. TeachKind.org provides FREE humane educational materials and policy resources for k-12 and college educators. Their goal is to end violence through humane education and policy initiatives. Humane Education means: violence prevention, character education, empathy building, youth empowerment and development of critical-thinking skills.
For me, a parent and teacher, it means getting materials that help teach my child how to make better choices to live a greener, kinder lifestyle.
Responses To The Materials
I laughed to myself because my sweet meat-loving husband took one look at the posters and said:
“I hope you don’t plan to put those posters up.”
My son loved the comics. Upon looking at the posters:
“We’re not nuggets: please don’t eat us!” my son’s eyes widened and said to the chicks: “I won’t. I’ll help you!!!”
“Meat’s not Green” my son said with sweet honesty: “Mama, I try. I really try. It’s just that meat taste so good!”
