Teaching empathy: What kind of parent are you?

Parents have been so focused on how
their kids feel, they forget to
teach kids to think about
how others feel.

So how does he think we can help our kids become kind, empathetic beings? A few tips:

1. Remember that kids are modeling you. They learn by watching what you do. And so … make sure to be nice to the “invisible” people. The waitress, the bus driver, the store clerk. If you say ‘Thank you” and “Please” to them, so will your children.
