Compassionate kids have a deeper appreciation for their world and the people, animals and places in it. Compassionate kids can make a difference in the lives of everyone around them. Empathy -- the ability to understand and be sensitive to other people's feelings -- helps us to be more deeply attached to our family, friends, and even strangers.
Compassionate people are those who are thankful, something you can teach them form their early years.
Encourage your children to explore their feelings. Always give them time to discuss what they're feeling. Keep the door to conversation open as they grow because they'll unlock new emotions with each new stage they enter. Only when they understand their own feelings, they can help others.
Helping others is a part of compassion and that includes helping others around the house or in the school.
The people in your children's lives can help you raise compassionate kids. From siblings to friends, when your children appreciate the people around them, they care about their well-being and their happiness. They are empathetic when they're sick or sad.
Your children need limits on their behaviour. Be compassionate to them, be a good model, but you also need to give consequences when a rule is broken.
