The Choice to Connect Through Empathy

This is a beautiful video created by Dr. Brené Brown, on the difference between empathy and sympathy. It’s a powerful lesson for our children — helping them to develop understanding of others. As a parent and a teacher, what do you do to model empathy? How do you help children make connections to others – and not just feel “bad” for those who suffer?
