6 Ways To Teach Empathy To Kids

Empathy is being considerate about someone else’s feeling. Putting oneself in other person’s shoes and being compassionate. It’s a life skill!

Although parents don’t overtly train their children to empathise, I think, as I ponder over my son’s reaction, we must teach empathy to them. It’s not impossible!

Here are 6 ways that can help:

1) Constructive instructions

2) Response to emotions

3) Demonstrate empathy

4. Be honest

5. Give and take of responsibility

6. Don’t commercialise empathy
