7 Questions To Ask Kids To Encourage Empathy

7 Questions To Ask Kids To Encourage Empathy | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

These smart ideas for encouraging children to be more empathetic are from Start Empathy, a new education initiative created by the nonprofit Ashoka. The goal is to get kids and adults thinking about the topic—key for raising kids who understand others’ feelings and perspectives, and key for raising kids who care. These seven questions will help get even the most me-centric kid (and what kid isn’t?!) thinking about other people.

 

How does that make you feel?...

 

Do you know at times I’ve also felt scared?...

 

How would that make your [brother/sister/friend] feel?...

 

What do you think [a particular character] felt?...

 

Why do you thinkhe/she made those choices?...

 

What emotion is that?...

 

If you had superpowers, how would you use them to help...

 

What were you like when you were nine years old?...

Sudden removal of trees from Town Square park prompts uproar -- and thanks

Sudden removal of trees from Town Square park prompts uproar -- and thanks | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
The removal of nine evergreens from Anchorage Town Square Park early Thursday morning drew sharp rebukes from tree experts and park regulars, but others said the dense trees created a hidden nest of illegal activity and a public safety hazard.
Rob Duke's insight:

We don't know all the facts, but: A little social justice circle mediation would have gone a long way before this project was implemented.  The trees may still have been removed, but the public buy-in would have been improved.
