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.

"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."
