EMPATHY – THE CAPACITY TO BE AFFECTED BY AND RESPOND TO HOW OTHERS FEEL

Empathic Parenting directly influences the development of affection, empathy and trust in infants and toddlers. It is during this developmental period from birth to the age of three that the foundations of these essential human capacities are set.


WE BELIEVE THAT

The necessity that every new human being develops the capacity for trust, affection and empathy dictates that potential parents re-order their priorities with this in mind.
