The Importance of Empathy in Parenting

Empathy in parenting is one of the most important skills we can have.

When we can put ourselves in the shoes of our children, we can begin to understand how they are feeling in certain situations and become more effective parents.

Kids in the House provides a great exercise to help parents become in tune to how their children perceive them.

Empathy is a very important skill for children to have as well. So, can we actually teach our children empathy?

    This is really great! I am a high school teacher and one of the big things I see is that these kids don’t care how they are perceived, don’t care how someone else might feel. This includes other students, their parents, and their teachers. They just don’t care and empathy is not in most of their vocabularies. Very important to raise kids that are empathetic.
