Here's today's feel-good story:
A new survey shows that parents are most proud of their child's ability to show kindness and compassion.
The poll of 1,000 parents that have kids ages three to seven also showed that parents are proud of their kids when they demonstrate selfless qualities.
Conducted by Thomas & Friends International Friendship Day Awards which honors the best examples of friendship displayed by children in the UK each year, the study shows that on average, children make their parents delighted about six times per week.
“The research has really highlighted the importance parents put on ensuring their children build great relationships at an early age,” spokeswoman Claudia Caron said. “Friendship can teach a child so many things and the survey has illustrated many of the positive impacts that give parents a sense of pride.
