Teaching Kids Empathy
Empathy is learned. Kids aren’t born with it, and they mainly learn it by observing adults displaying empathy. We want our kids to show empathy when it’s appropriate. Being kind and compassionate to others is a good character trait. In this episode, I talk about how kids develop empathy, how abstract reasoning plays into empathy development, and I explain a psychology term called “other orientation”.
