How to Teach Your Children Compassion

We live in a world where compassion seems to be in short supply. Children are bullied and cyber-bullied. Homeless people are beaten.

The poor are blamed for their plight. You as parents can be a part of the problem or a part of the solution. Your words can convey callousness and indifference, or your words can communicate caring and warmth.

You can use words to help your children to appreciate and instill the value of compassion in their minds and lives.

One way to use words is to develop catchphrases that capture the meaning of compassion in a compelling and memorable way.
