It’s a jungle out there.

Every child will be exposed to tacky language and behavior, no matter how much parents want to shelter them. When the inevitable occurs, Tacky Box equips children with the skills to distinguish between what’s appropriate and inappropriate and encourages them to proactively choose how to respond. Inspiring kindness rather than tackiness, Tacky Box Set arms parents with everything they need to help their child navigate the jungle, kind heart and good manners intact. Tacky Box started with a four-letter word and evolved into a collaborative effort to make the world a kinder place one child at a time. Read the story here.

What is Tacky Box?

Tacky Box is an interactive set that teaches children to choose kindness over tacky language and behavior. The 3-piece set includes a 32-page beautifully illustrated book, directions for use from the author, a special notepad for writing down tacky words and actions, and an authentic wooden Tacky Box to put them in to remove them from the mind and heart. Available for boys, girls, and in classroom sets.

Tacky Box Works.

Tacky Box came to us through the heart of a woman who believes kindness can heal the world. She also believes that true healing needs to be at the heart level. I have the unique perspective of seeing the benefits of Tacky Box in action as an educator to Chris' kids. I have watched the growth of young children using this tool and been amazed at their ability to become aware of then monitor their own words and actions. It is the self-awareness Tacky Box promotes that is the real gift. It is critical that we teach children that their words do have an effect. Our thoughts and spoken words actually shape our own reality and deeply affect those around us. As we raise self-awareness in our children, there will be change for the better in our world. True, lasting change comes from how we educate the next generation.
