Empathy is easier to engage than to teach. Much!!!Posted: December 8, 2011
Children know a lot. (They don’t always know that they know, but when they discover this fact … their confidence, courage and self-worth are substantially fortified.)
Children’s social intelligence expands when they’re exposed to well-designed opportunities that enliven their own common sense, empathy and critical thinking/problem solving skills.
Young children have profound focusing abilities … when topics are perceived by them as personally relevant.
Very young children are learning ALL the time, and that very definitely includes time they spend with other children.
