Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads

Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads | American English Language | Scoop.it

All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

(Teaching Empathy) The Importance of Teaching Children Empathy

(Teaching Empathy) The Importance of Teaching Children Empathy | American English Language | Scoop.it

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It seems so simple, yet it is an essential (and often overlooked) skill children need to learn in order to develop into healthy adults.

 

As parents, it’s not always in the forefront of our minds, and some may find it a bit odd to think they need to actually teach their child empathy. Doesn’t it just come naturally? 

 

1. Make your parental expectations clear. ...
2. Identify Feelings...
3. Be a Role Model...
