Introduce Maya Angelou's famous quote to your kids and have a family discussion about what it means and how it applies to their life.
"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou was an American author, actress, screenwriter, dancer, poet and civil rights activist. As a child she endured racial prejudice, sexual abuse and was a first-hand witness to violence. Due to trauma, Maya stopped talking for 5 years. However, she found her voice in art. She recieved many awards including a Pulitzer nomination and two NAACP Image Awards.
