How to Help Your Child Develop Empathy

How to Help Your Child Develop Empathy | Education | Scoop.it
Kids are natural born narcissists. How can parent help them develop a sense of empathy and compassion toward others? Brian Gresko has a few suggestions.

 

The first step toward building empathy is talking about feelings with your kid. For a young child, like my four-year-old, instead of asking rhetorical questions like “Why would you hit your friend?” I simply tell him straight-up: Hitting is wrong. It’s not how we treat people. Socratic methods might work for older children, or those with a more advanced emotional palette, but at least for my hard-headed, firecracker of a little boy, it doesn’t get through. In fact, it often aggravates the problem, because the questions perplex him, or else open the door to another conflict.

So true, they are more active and least likely to do only listening activities. .. thanks for this.

This topic is dear to all our hearts as we see boys struggling with academics.  So who has the answer?
