The Children's Kindness Network is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) dedicated to stop bullying before it begins by teaching kindness values to young children through Moozie® the Cow.
Kindness to self, others, animals, and Earth. Building a Culture of Kindness — Beginning with Pre-K.
"Young children are the future hope of this country. We as parents, grandparents, educators, and leaders are challenged to help these children understand the importance of kindness, having respect for others, and having the ability to decide on what is the right thing to do and do it. Kindness is not weakness, Kindness requires strong character and is important for us as a society. Teaching and encouraging kindness to young children is the foundation for reducing violence and bullying among children."
- Ronald W. Yates , General, USAF (Ret)
The Children's Kindness Network has brought new programs and materials on kindness to help busy preschool teachers. Bringing kindness teaching to at-risk children is especially critical in their early brain wiring — some Middle TN counties have 64% of their 4-year-olds considered economically at risk putting many low income, minority children behind in brain development. Social emotional learning, kindness, effects cognitive learning as well.
Moozie becomes a dear friend to the children. Teachers find Moozie to be a very helpful assistant in classroom management. When discipline problems arise, the teacher may ask " What would Moozie say/do?"
Yearly, over 30,000 children hear Moozie's message of kindness-- and this number is growing as more and more schools are using Moozie Teaches Kindness materials.
