It’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Day Heather Hopson March 20, 2013 Uncategorized Dear Diary, Today is Absolutely Incredible Kid Day–a day when adults tell young people they are, well, incredible! The national letter writing campaign is a call to action, inviting adults to write words of love and support to children. According to Camp Fire USA, the organization that spearheads the campaign, words of encouragement can come at just the time a child needs them most–helping the child to make better decisions, build self-esteem and even be more compassionate and successful. Why a letter? A letter is a personal, tangible thing a kid can hold onto for years. I still have handwritten notes from my grandparents, which are tucked safely away in a memory chest. So I decided to make memories for my daughter and write how absolutely incredible she is to me. Camp Fire even offers downloadable stationary. You can tuck a letter under your child’s pillow or in your child’s lunchbox or backpack. If they’re not old enough to read a letter yet, keep a copy in your child’s baby book to share in the years to come. Hey DFTM fam–what will you write to your child? How is he/she absolutely incredible? Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
