Teaching Empathy

Our MOPS speaker this morning, Kristie Christie from Compassion International, did a wonderful job talking to us about the importance of raising kids to have empathy. I hope you got a chance to hear her!

It got me thinking about practical ways that I can teach my toddlers to think about others, to start them on the path to empathy even as young as 2 and 3 years old. I came across this fantastic resource from Harvard's "Making Caring Common" project. They give five tips, with three or so practical (easy/doable) things you can do right now. It's an easy read and I highly recommend it!
