Thankfully, science has also found a positive way to deal with these emotions through something called self-compassion.

Teaching Compassion: Changing the World Through Empathy and Education

Teaching Compassion: Changing the World Through Empathy and Education | Educating for Empathy and Emotional Well-Being | Scoop.it

Charter for Compassion, Roots of Empathy and other nonprofits, parents and school educators are beginning to teach empathy, altruism and kindness to children as part of a shift toward the art of compassion.

 

Children are often told in a tone of reprimand by parents and teachers: “How would you feel if they did that to you?” It is essentially the photo negative of the Golden Rule (“do unto others …”).

 

What if that message evolved into a positive set of values, then fused into lesson plans, group activities and a school ethos?

It’s happening all over the world, thanks in part to the efforts of the Charter for Compassion and its partners.
