"There are as many approaches to teaching kids about money as there are different parenting styles. When we last asked you about this subject, some replied they use the allowance system, while other parents simply instruct their kids to work for anything extra they want. Regardless of your specific philosophy, the most important thing may be to teach by example, using everyday life lesson" http://buff.ly/13raEmc

5 Tools for raising compassionate, empathetic kids

5 Tools for raising compassionate, empathetic kids | Parenting | Scoop.it
Empathy, compassion and the resulting kindness they instill are key ingredients to a life of happiness. Find out how to raise children with these qualities.

 

Raising kids to be compassionate and to have empathy is possible.

The good news is that multiple studies say children as young as toddlers have innate feelings of compassion and empathy. Empathy is defined as the ability to imagine walking in the shoes of another. And compassion is the emotional response generated by the suffering of others and then wanting to act on it by helping.

 

Research also says the empathy, compassion and the resulting kindness they instill are key ingredients to a life of happiness. What we do as adults matters in raising children to further develop those innate responses. Here are five tools that we can each incorporate into our lives.

I think this is the most missed opportunities by majority of couples. Dating and courting should not be only be happening the first time the couple met. It must be a neverending event before and after marriage. Even children and grandchildren come, dating and courting should always be there for couples.
