Pagan Virtues -- Kindliness

Monday, September 1, 2008
Next in my series on Pagan Virtues is the virtue of Kindliness. Probably one of the easiest of the virtues to learn. So what is kindliness? Well simply speaking it is the act of being kind. And it is the end result of following the Wiccan Rede, 'An it harm none, do as ye will. For doing no harm is the end result of being kind.
But how to teach this to the children. That can be as simple as reminding them to be kind and correcting them when they stray from doing kind things. But it can be as complex as setting up imaginary scenarios and asking them what the appropriate thing in that situation would be to do.
This also has the added benefit of relieving and abating the complex known as being a brat. We have all met the children that are mean and selfish. Being taught Kindliness would be the balm that their spirit would need.
Blessed Be!
