In part 2 of our series on kids and feelings, we talk about kids who can empathize with others. This episode is a deeper dive into the “why” behind our new kid’s book What Am I Feeling?
So often, it can feel like a pipe dream getting our kids to think about anyone other than themselves. Let’s be honest, our world could use more adults who can empathize as well. In this episode, we talk about being teachable, responding to others in empathy, and how our kids mirror our emotions. We also discuss how fear and busyness become barriers to entering our child’s world and helping her label her feelings.
