Read this story. Do you wish you had been taught programming in school ? Do you think this is a good thing? Will this make GCSE and A level Computing harder in the future? Will this mean that there needs to be more computing teachers  Bring your thoughts to your next computing class.

4. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression.

 

Grateful people are more likely to behave in a prosocial manner, even when others behave less kind, according to a 2012 study by the University of Kentucky. Study participants who ranked higher on gratitude scales were less likely to retaliate against others, even when given negative feedback. They experienced more sensitivity and empathy toward other people and a decreased desire to seek revenge.

Empathy: Why It's Important, Why We Should Nurture It in Our Kids | ParentFurther

Empathy: Why It's Important, Why We Should Nurture It in Our Kids | ParentFurther | Kids Education & More | Scoop.it

By: Steve Palmer

One of the most important skills we can teach our kids is empathy. Empathy is the ability to see and value what another person is feeling or experiencing.

 

When we see someone in pain and feel that response in our own gut, that’s empathy. When we see someone crying tears of joy at an important reunion and notice ourselves choking up, that’s empathy. When we see someone struggling with a problem and feel an emotional pull to help, that’s empathy.

 

It’s a core skill for what psychologists call “pro-social” behavior – the actions that are involved in building close relationships, maintaining friendships, and developing strong communities. It appears to be the central reality necessary for developing a conscience, as well.   Raising empathetic kids might seem like a challenging task, but kids are empathetic by nature!...

 

So, what are some ways to help support our kids’ development of empathy, and the ability to respond to others in constructive ways?

Here are a few points to consider:

Help your kids put words to their emotions. Feel out loudInclude empathy as part of disciplineReward empathy.Be patient.
