Empathy Killers

Empathy Killers | Relationships | Scoop.it

I didn’t plan on writing about empathy this week. I got “hooked” while reading Nicholas Kristof’s compelling New York Times article, Where is the Love, over  “Thanksgiving” weekend and knew I needed to revisit the topic.

 

In the article Kristof writes about the pushback he’s received from many readers in his recent pieces on food stamp recipients, prison inmates and the uninsured.  Writing about hungry children, Kristof shares a comment from a reader who protested, “If kids are going hungry, it is because of the parents not upholding their responsibilities.”

Charles Fischer's curator insight, November 19, 2014 5:49 AM

As one of the four basic ingredients of communication (with speaking, reading and writing), listening is critical for establishing an effective environment for conversation. Teachers must, of course, model listening for their students. Listening is a skill that must be practiced just like any other skill, yet students are not given much time to focus on it.
