Raising an Empathetic Child -

Raising an Empathetic Child - | Living with Diabetes | Scoop.it

Here are five tips for raising an empathetic child:

Be a responsive parent. Beginning in infancy, babies learn empathy when their needs are met by a caregiver....Label feelings.  When children are able to identify and name their own emotions, they are better able to recognize emotion in others. ...Allow all feelings to be okay. Many parents want to quickly jump in and make sad or angry feelings go away for their children. ...Model empathy. Sue Boxer, director of early childhood at B’nai Jehudah, is inspired by the quote “If you don’t model what you teach, you are teaching something else.” ....Volunteer. Finding ways to serve others allows your child to think about what it would be like to be in someone else’s shoes. ...

 

Know that developing and practicing empathy is a lifelong process, not something that happens overnight.

Regular, moderate exercise can help you stay healthy and energized during your pregnancy.
Helene Wild's insight:

sounds so obvious, but rather than bed rest & couchsurfing, moderate exercise with Medical approval is actually a safer path for many pregnant women..& of course for most people with diabetes of any type. So gestational diabetes = a good time to get that approved exercise programme in place.

Participants must record how many carbohydrates they eat -- every time they eat -- for a week.

Via Ellen H Ullman, MSW
Helene Wild's insight:

If you are working with people with diabetes and do not have personal experience of living daily life with diabetes, you may find that your patients/clients benefit from the empathy and the insights you can gain from trying this strategy. It wont include hypos, injecting, testing, costs, medication, the endless round of seeing a myriad HCP's, but it will give you some idea about the judgements and daily restrictions.

It still misses what it's like to have high and low blood sugar.  Parents who constantly complain to their children about not taking good enough care of their diabetes, should do this exercise routinely!

Social Media Implementation Checklist

Social Media Implementation Checklist | Living with Diabetes | Scoop.it

Set goals first. If traffic, leads and sales are part of the goal, then gotta have the next focus be on content creation. Then, using social to share. Can't get much value out of social unless you're actively creating, publishing and sharing content.
