Teaching Kids about Compassion and Empathy

Teaching Kids about Compassion and Empathy | Tutto: Primary | Scoop.it

When I was finishing my graduate studies in psychology, one piece of raising children stuck out to me – that of teaching empathy.

 

Science now shows that children are born with empathy. It’s the reason they begin to cry when another baby or child cries. This is truly their (our) natural state. However, we get culturally conditioned out of being empathetic.

 

Q: What can you do to ensure your child’s natural empathetic style stays with them through adulthood?


A: Be empathetic yourself – as a parent, as a partner, as a human being..

Our Reggio Emilia-Inspired Classroom Transformation: Environment as Third Teacher | Tutto: Primary | Scoop.it

LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog!! It shows the transformation of a classroom due to a shift in thinking about how young children best learn. It reminds me that this is a process that happens over time and is not as simple as following a series of steps. This is hard thinking and work --- as many of you already know!
