Empathy & Kindness

Empathy and kindness are two of the most critical elements that we can develop in our children. We have been closely following the work out of the Harvard University, Making Caring Common Project. The report from that project is hard hitting and creates a call to action for parents and educators to nurture and support empathy and kindness.
