Michele Borba: The Empathy Crisis: Why Children Are Crueler | Dr. Michele Borba's Reality Check

Michele Borba: The Empathy Crisis: Why Children Are Crueler | Dr. Michele Borba's Reality Check | Bullying | Scoop.it
EMPATHY: Identifying with and feeling other people’s concerns.

Empathy, the first essential virtue of moral intelligence, is the ability to identify with and feel for another person’s concerns. It’s the powerful emotion that halts violent and cruel behavior and urges us to treat others kindly. Because empathy emerges naturally and quite early, our children are born with a huge built-in advantage for their moral growth. But whether our kids will develop this marvelous capacity to feel for others is far from guaranteed. Although children are born with the capacity for empathy, it must be properly nurtured or it will remain dormant.
