(Empathic Parenting) "Good" Children - at What Price? Shame Doesn't Teach about Relationship or Empathy

(Empathic Parenting) "Good" Children - at What Price?    Shame Doesn't Teach about Relationship or Empathy | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

While shaming has the power to control behavior, it does not have the power to teach empathy. When we repeatedly label a child "naughty" or otherwise, we condition them to focus inwardly, and they become pre-occupied with themselves and their failure to please. Thus children learn to label themselves, but learn nothing about relating, or about considering and comprehending the feelings of others.


For empathy to develop, children need to be shown how others feel. In calling children "naughty", for example, we have told the child nothing about how we feel in response to their behavior.


Children cannot learn about caring for others' feelings, nor about how their behavior impacts on others, while they are thinking: "There is something wrong with me." In fact, psychotherapists and researchers are finding that individuals who are more prone to shame, are less capable of empathy toward others, and more self-preoccupied.

The only true basis for morality is a deeply felt empathy toward the feelings of others. Empathy is not necessarily what drives the "well-behaved" "good boy" or "good girl".

Ruth Hall's curator insight, August 11, 2015 2:04 PM

It's not that Google isn't a useful entry point, it's more the thinking  that needs to happen to focus a search, to evaluate sources for credibility and bias/opinion, to compare information, synthesize and add one's own insights.

Brain science: the answer to helping primary pupils cope with exam stress - the guardian

Brain science: the answer to helping primary pupils cope with exam stress - the guardian | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Exam season can be especially stressful for children in primary school; many of their high-brain neural networks, which manage emotions such as stress, won’t have been built yet.

Neuro-imaging research shows that stress blocks communication from the upper cognitive brain down to the brain’s lower core, which is more emotionally reactive. This means that just when children need it most, they have limited access to the upper-brain regions that helpself-control, and access to their high-brain cortex where the memories they need are stored. Under pressure students can become emotional and find it hard to remember vital information.

"As computer science skills like coding become increasingly relevant in the job market, a number of states and districts are making moves to set students up for success. 


Today, 25 states require students to take a computer science course in order to graduate from high school — more than double the number with such a requirement in 2013.


Additionally, a large number of districts are weaving coding instruction into early learning curriculum, impacting students as young as kindergarten. "
