Babies prove to be effective empathy teachers

“We use babies to teach empathy because everyone loves babies,” The world’s youngest teachers are showing elementary students how to be better people.

Roots of Empathy celebrated its ninth year with a wrap party and presentation Thursday at Thunder Bay’s Kingsway Park School.
Students and the families involved with Roots of Empathy met at the school to give thanks and say good-bye to the babies who taught older children how to be more caring and compassionate.
Kingsway didn’t host a Roots to Empathy program; sister school Hyde Park did. Hyde Park’s gym couldn’t accommodate the large crowd.
