Young Boys and the Need to Develop Empathy

Doyin Richards previously wrote an article on boys need to better develop the skill of empathy (see below). This is key for them in the future as husband and fathers, but is often not done because it does not align with social norms, which after you read this you will agree need to be changed.

Without the skill of empathy boys head down a negative path, as caring for others is key to the development of positive social skills. Without it, in the end, one has trouble with being a husband and father. The base skills necessary for the development of empathy are best taught during the Birth to 5 year old window. After this time has passed it becomes increasingly difficult for children to learn this all important skill.
