Deborah McNelis's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:26 PM

Children need the opportuntiy for imaginative play to develop the highest thinking areas of the brain responsible for self regulation and executive function.

Tess Sorensen's comment, April 6, 2013 6:34 PM
"Play is created by children, not adults." Adults, learn to step back and let the children lead. Do not ever think that you are only a teacher, you must remember to be a learner also.

How to Develop Empathy in Children through Human-Animal Relationship

How to Develop Empathy in Children through Human-Animal Relationship | Family Friendly Learning | Scoop.it

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It is an element of emotional intelligence and is related to success in many areas of development – personal, social and academic. Empathy is a human trait that many people have a “low reserve” thus all the problems we have in the world today.

 

Empathy skills can also be cultivated and developed. Parents can help children develop empathy by using the human-animal relationship. Children naturally love and are fascinated by animals. Parents can take advantage of that by fostering animal care, thereby inspiring the child’s intelligence and imagination to be empathetic and extend care in another person. Learning how to respond empathetically is also the best antidote to violence, bullying, and other unwanted aggressive behavior.

Teaching your child to be compassionate

Teaching your child to be compassionate | Family Friendly Learning | Scoop.it

As society becomes increasingly competitive, there is a danger that we are all losing that essential quality that makes us human; compassion. In order to ensure that we do not become robots devoid of emotion, it is important to raise compassionate children...

 

How

Monkey see, monkey do. Children learn what they live. Do to others what you want them to do to you. I could go on and on with similar phrases and they would all be true. If you want your child to be compassionate and humble, you have to be that way yourself. These qualities need to be a part of who you are, though, not just what you do when it’s convenient or out of obligation. It needs to come from the heart.
