It Isn’t All About Me
“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?” The words of Henry David Thoreau ring true in the development of empathy in children. Every encounter with a child is an opportunity to teach and model empathetic practices that motivate children to be kind, moral, courageous, and grow into resilient adults. We will determine actions that should take place in classrooms to support this type of child development.
