Parents Reveal Tips on How to Stay Positive in Tough Times
Parents have united in the wake of recent terrorist atrocities in London and Manchester by sharing top tips on how to stay positive in tough times.
Eight in ten parents have been impressed by the way Britain has rallied – and vowed not to let evil triumph.
The study of 1,000 parents showed the incidents have actually brought people together, rather than divide us.
Eighty-three per cent who took part in the poll feel the country is more united now that it was before the terrorists struck.
Nine out of ten of those who were polled said they were now MORE LIKELY to carry out a random act of kindness.
Siobhan Freegard, founder of ChannelMum.com which carried out the study said: “The aim of terror is to tear the nation apart, but instead has it brought us together.
“Families around the country are reporting feeling closer than ever before to their friends, neighbours and communities – whichever creed, colour or religion.
“Carrying out a random act of kindness won’t stop terror attacks, but in its own small way, it will make the world a better place.”
The research revealed eight out of ten parents said they would now feel comfortable saying hello to strangers.
It also emerged fears the attacks may lead to people quitting major cities to move out to the country appear unfounded, with six out of ten (62per cent) adults vowing to stay put.
Almost four out of ten (39per cent) even went as far as to say the recent attacks have made them determined to be a better person.
Channel Mum have launched the #KindnessCM challenge – encouraging people to carry out small random acts of kindness, with a video featuring mum-of-three Sarah-Jayne Ljungstrom, 35, of Richmond.
