Kindergarten kids talk kindness on World Compliment Day

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

March 1, 2016 is a day known around the world for telling people they’re appreciated and paying someone a compliment. The day is not associated with any commercialized product. Nothing is being sold, unless you consider kindness a commodity.

WBTV decided to sit down with Mrs. Hayes’ kindergarten class at Invest Collegiate Charter School in Charlotte to ask questions about compliments. The classroom is full of 5-year-olds just learning what it means to tell someone something nice, so their answers are incredibly genuine.

“You have to have a kind heart,” said one girl, “Because if you’re being mean and not kind enough, you’re going to get in trouble.”

Kids always say it best. A compliment should come from the heart. And it should be genuine. That’s the point of World Compliment Day. 

“Don’t be disrespectful, be great and kind to people,” Journey said.
