Storystorm Day 24: Idea 24

So apparently January 24th is National Compliment Day.  And it couldn’t come soon enough. We could use a day that forces us to look for something good in everyone else. Especially people we’re in opposition to.

So what if someone who is picked on- or maybe they’re the antagonist, and is cursed to live the line, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”

If the kid wants to communicate anything, s/he has to say nice, even about people s/he does not like at all. And when forced to look for the good in someone, the child learns there is good in everyone. And that’s a good place to start in coming to understand the people s/he thinks are just the worst.
