Teaching Empathy To Kids

Toddlers HugMost days it feels like I am playing referee to my twin boys rather than being the fun mom I know I can be. They are thick into those terrible twos where they are learning how to exert their independence and have a pretty self-centered world view. I am a believer in time outs and they have worked for my family. When they hurt one another, I tell them to hug each other and say sorry. It is very important to me that they know how to be empathetic and compassionate to others.

When watching the news, it is scary and overwhelming to witness the lack empathy in the world and its particularly unnerving to witness in kids. It seems there is a story every day about how children are victimized by their own peers. More and more children seem to lack the ability to put themselves in other people’s shoes and instead of viewing each other as human beings they view others as objects that they can hurt or tease for their own amusement. A world without empathy is simply terrifying.
