Teaching Children Empathy

This is a great article resulting from research at Harvard’s Making Caring Common Project. I’m delighted to see that Ashoka is playing a role in the conversation around empathy. My only thought on the 5 recommendations is that #3 should be placed at #5 because practice (for adults and kids) is imperative at all levels of supporting and developing empathy.

Reflection: This ties in to my post on Steve Jobs because of the focus on what we value most and what we are communicating to our children.
