Austin Cullen Rogers's curator insight, March 27, 2:35 AM

Social status is extremely important in American culture, the amount of money one has defines who they are and what they are capable of. The poor are stereotyped as being weak and many in the lower socioeconomic class are expected to stay there for life. Money is what makes America the way it is, that's why the rich get much more respect than everyone else and are seen as being much more intelligent than everyone else, but that's not always the case. Obama is making small efforts to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor, but his methods are extremely ineffective. The government needs to stop trusting and funding the rich so much so that the lower class have a chance at the American Dream.

Generation Jobless: A warning to us all

Generation Jobless: A warning to us all | DSqM: The Deptford Square Mile | Scoop.it

Robert Boutang's comment, July 4, 2013 5:50 PM
Economist ran a cover story about the ‘generation jobless’ – the global rise of youth unemployment. This is a serious concern that could have long-lasting implications for both the global economy and political stability. This was a generation that had only just arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed in the work environment only to be told there was no place for them. It was a generation determined to make their mark, to make a real difference and they were more than up for the challenge of restoring some sort of global and environmental equilibrium. In this regard they were unlike their predecessors – The depression that accompanies being without work will impact on this generation more than most. Exactly how this will play out – a greater distrust for the ‘institution’ and for national politics to name but two things, is hard to predict. But put yourself in their place and ask how can it not have enormous consequences? Unhappy, disempowered populace – especially one with youth and energy on their side, fuels social revolutions. Add into that volatile mix the connectivity this generation enjoys through social media and you have all the raw ingredients of social upheaval. Generation Jobless’…it is a headline that is chilling in its implications and one that serves as a stark warning to us all.

Teaching Kids about Empathy | Kid World Citizen

Teaching Kids about Empathy | Kid World Citizen | DSqM: The Deptford Square Mile | Scoop.it

How else can parents teach a child to be empathetic and compassionate towards others?


Children who have grown up in loving environments have some inherent compassion, because they been nurtured and have had their needs met. Our environments, and especially our parents’ actions shape young children and build the foundation of their personality. Children develop empathy as they witness kindness towards others, respect for other cultures and races, and examples of how to stand up for what’s right in the face of discrimination. As parents and caretakers model compassion and empathy towards their partners, children, friends, and even strangers, we demonstrate how to put our feelings into an action that helps the person suffering and alleviates their situation.

 

Our children observe our empathy when we assist someone who just dropped their groceries, return a phone left behind, stop a joke based on stereotypes, bring dinner to a new mom, or stick up for kids who are getting picked on. We are the model from which are children learn.
