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 or watch how it evolved here.
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.
The opportunity to travel during my reign as Miss USA paired with my experience as a mom of four has opened my eyes to the need to make the world a kinder place. I believe Tacky Box is exactly what we need to make real change starting with our children.
