If you want to spread kindness and compassion, you might try this. The next time you see a parent in a store or restaurant struggling with a crying or otherwise unruly child, make it a point to smile in a supportive manner. If you are really feeling bold, you could make a comment about parenting being tough, that they are doing great, or some other understanding statement. The support of others can make the difference between someone having a very difficult day and someone having a truly inspiring one. Compassion is contagious.
