Here is a quick preview of Dr. Michele Borba’s talk from the Positive Parenting Conference 2018.
In this talk titled How to Raise Kind, Compassionate and Empathetic Kids (and Why It Is the Best Thing You Can Do for Them), Dr. Borba and I discuss:
- What empathy is
- Why helping our kids become kind, compassionate and empathetic could be the best thing we do for them.
- Several different ways to help kids develop this skill, even if they seem like they aren’t naturally kind and compassionate
If kindness and compassion are core family values you want to teach your kids, or you are frustrated with the lack of kindness your kids sometimes display, or for that matter you want to give your kids an advantage to succeed at life (be it academics or in finding happiness) this talk will give you all the tools you need. Dr. Borba has spent decades studying this, and has some amazing insights and super practical tips!
