The world could use a little more kindness, and kindness begins with each one of us. But how do we teach our kids to be kind when unkindness is so abundant?
I have been wanting to publish a podcast about this topic for quite some time, and I knew that Kay West needed to be the one to teach us. She is one of the kindest, most encouraging people I know. Not only that, but she is raising two teenagers whom she adopted from birth after years of infertility, miscarriages, and one failed adoption.
Kay’s daughter, Eden, has multiple physical and mental special needs and has been severely bullied and treated unkindly by many people. I am not a super emotional person, but both Kay and I shed a few tears during this interview. Her perspective on teaching kindness is one that every parent needs to hear.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
- What Kay’s journey through infertility and adoption was like, and the beautiful insight she gained as a result
- What it is like to raise a child with special needs
- How bullying effects special-needs children (even when they cannot communicate well) and their families
- What parents can do to teach their kids to love and respect those who are different (a perspective I had never considered prior to this interview)
- How understanding your divine worth changes the way you see others, making it easier to give grace and be kind
