Training Kids for Kindness

Training Kids for Kindness | Hope and Kindness | Scoop.it

Brooke Dodson-Lavelle explains how a trailblazing compassion training program expands children's natural capacity for empathy and kindness—even toward so-called "bullies.

 

..My colleagues and I at Emory University believe people have a natural capacity for empathy, love, and compassion, and that it can be deliberately deepened and expanded—to include even so-called “bullies”— through training. 

 

Compassion involves both the heartfelt wish that others be free from suffering and the readiness to act on their behalf. It arises from a deep sense of affection for others, coupled with a sensitivity to their pain and the recognition that their suffering can be transformed.

Books and Movies That Teach Compassion and Kindness

Books and Movies That Teach Compassion and Kindness | Hope and Kindness | Scoop.it

A resource list of children's books and movies that teach or emphasize qualities such as compassion, empathy, kindness, friendship and sacrifice, divided by age groups from preschool, elementary school, middle and high school.

 

We all know by now that there's more to raising kids than reading, writing and 'rithmatic. Research has shown that qualities such as kindness, empathy, friendship, sacrifice and compassion are the ones that truly dictate not only how well our children succeed but, even more importantly, how happy they are.

 

Kids today are bombarded by media opportunities and access everywhere they look. But is the media they use really helping them? We've crafted a Media Guide of compassion- and empathy-building books and movies that expose kids to the lessons really worth learning.

Tweeting empathy, a kindness at a time

Tweeting empathy, a kindness at a time | Hope and Kindness | Scoop.it

Sara Konrath's single mom struggled to raise her large working-class family until an older woman in the community named Ruth befriended them, helping out in every way she could until she became a surrogate grandmother.

"Her amazing care and empathy has stayed with me all my life," Konrath tells us.

 

Konrath has a lifelong fascination with empathy - what makes people like Ruth care so selflessly for others? It's a fascination to which we can relate. Today Konrath, who was raised in Canada, is a researcher at the University of Michigan where she puts empathy under the scientific microscope.
