A prize for being Good?

Anushka's school felicitates kids from each class if they follow the theme of the month.
Anush was the chosen one this time for-" kindness."

While we wished her, we also had a chat with her later -that she had to be good because it was the right way to be. Not with any expectation of rewards / accolades.

I think she understood and agrees. This makes me a proud momma. Touch wood.

Good to see schools rewarding something other than top marks! And yes, kids do also need to understand they won't always be rewarded for goodness!! Congrats to Anush!
