Do Parrots Name Their Babies? http://t.co/1Tbo8ae86b
Parrot Partner's insight:

Researchers from the World Parrot Trust tell us that when a baby parrot is stolen from the nest the mother will return to the same spot every year and appears to be searching for her lost chick.  It wouldn't surprise me that they would have specific calls (names) for their young.

Training Kids for Kindness

Training Kids for Kindness | Parrot Partner | 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.
