5 Tools for raising compassionate, empathetic kids

5 Tools for raising compassionate, empathetic kids | Thanks Attitude | 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.

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads | Thanks Attitude | Scoop.it

The reason a compassionate lifestyle leads to greater psychological well-being may be explained by the fact that the act of giving appears to be as pleasurable, if not more so, as the act of receiving.

 

Another way in which a compassionate lifestyle may improve longevity is that it may serve as a buffer against stress.

 

Yet another reason compassion may boost our well-being is that it can help broaden our perspective beyond ourselves.

 

Finally, one additional way in which compassion may boost our well-being is by increasing a sense of connection to others.

 

Given the importance of compassion in our world today, and a growing body of evidence about the benefits of compassion for health and well-being, this field is bound to generate more interest and hopefully impact our community at large.

Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's insight:

Very interesting!!! And when you feel compassion through the heart, all of a sudden you understand that you are the creator of everything you experience!

 

And, as a consequence, you automatically Thank for what has allowed you to learn things you had to learn for your own evolution!!!

Thank you Amy for rescooping this nice article! Our ability to empathize leads us to compassion, which is the key to change "negative" patterns in our life!

"In fact, human beings are “hard wired” for empathy – it’s part of what makes us deeply social animals, and distinct from other animals on the planet."
