Are a Bucket Filler Or A Bucket Dipper?
I just found this wonderful blog We are That Family and she was talking about a new program her kids school is using this year. She said they have deemed themselves a " Bucket Filling School".
It's based on this award-winning book: Have You Filled A Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, by Carol McCloud.
This is such a great program. I actually had heard of this idea in a book I had to read for work called Monday Morning Leadership, which is a excellent book BTW. It never dawned on me at the time I was reading the book what a wonderful lesson this would be for children.
I love that it has biblical concept and it can also impact your children as home as well as school. Kristen from We are That Family says it has been a wonderful impact on her children. She says every once in a while from the playroom she can hear "You just filled my bucket, thanks!" or "That hurt my feelings, you bucket-dipper!"
