• Have You  Filled A Bucket Today?

    A bucket represents a person’s mental and emotional health or self-concept. Many children have empty buckets through no fault of their own. Young children are dependent on others to fill their buckets. Your positive, caring, encouraging words and actions fill buckets. Any time our buckets are empty or dipped into, there is an automatic reflex to dip and take it out on others or ourselves. That’s why it is so important that we keep everyone’s bucket full.

     

    Remember … everyone carries an invisible bucket.

    What little thing can you say or do to fill someone’s bucket today?
