Teaching Empathy

Teaching Empathy | Dear World, wake up! | Scoop.it

Just before the holidays I finished the illustrations for a children's book about empathy.  Even while the project was in process, I found the book to be a great teaching tool with the boys.  Who couldn't use some help in the area of putting yourself in someone else's shoes?

 

 

"When Emily asks her big sister what the word empathy means, Emily has no idea that knowing the answer will change how she looks at people. But does it really matter to others if Emily notices how theyre feeling? Standing in My Shoes shows kids how easy it is to develop empathy toward those around them.

Empathy is the ability to notice what other people feel. Empathy leads to the social skills and personal relationships which make our lives rich and beautiful, and it is something we can help our children learn. This book teaches young children the value of noticing how other people feel. Were hoping that many parents read it along with their children."

The Best Kept Secret to Happiness: Compassion | Project Happiness

The Best Kept Secret to Happiness: Compassion | Project Happiness | Dear World, wake up! | Scoop.it

A closer look at our own experiences as well as research data suggests that the secret to lasting happiness does not lie in any goods, relationships or achievements, but rather in what we can give: not just material gifts, but gifts of time, gifts of love, gifts of ourselves. Compassion and service don’t justmake us happy but they also have a host of other associated benefits and may even contribute to a longer life. Here’s how:

Compassion Makes You Happy...

Compassion Makes You Wise..

Compassion Makes You Attractive...

Compassion Gives You Money and Time....

Compassion Boosts Your Health...

Compassion Uplifts & Spreads...

Compassion is 100% Natural...

Zophya Labrador's insight:

Once again, I would call it "empathy", not compassion. We should seek to understand other people's emotions on a horizontal level relationship, not a vertical. No body is better or knows better about emotions. They just are.

 

We must certainly learn to accept them, embrace them, share them and engage to understand the content of what the other is feeling.

 

Once all this is placed... we will have very different societies and mind-frames.

"Compassion and service don’t just make us happy but they also have a host of other associated benefits and may even contribute to a longer life." This lines up with Robert K. Greenleaf and Servant Leadership quite nicely.
