Are we teaching empathy by example?

Are you good at being able to understand the feelings of others and share in their struggles? Here is why it is important to model empathy for your children to learn from.

Being a parent requires a lot of patience. It requires us to be kind, understanding and empathetic towards our children. However, this is often easier said than done. It’s not so simple to keep calm when you’re under stress or when you need to get the kids out the door. It’s not so simple to pay attention to your child’s needs all the time.

But there is a lot of value in
modelling empathy to your children.
