Teaching Children Compassion
My 3 year old started “school” this year. Shortly after the year started she would come home and say, “my fwend had to sit in time out today”, or “my fwend hit today”.
Oh really? What friend?
“I not know, mama. My FWENDS!”
So of course, my mama brain started thinking maybe she was talking about herself. It didn’t seem like her personality (although if it had been her younger sister…) but I shot the teacher an e-mail anyways just to check. I was quickly reassured that my little one was not making mischief but she WAS the first to run up to sad classmates and comfort them.
Doesn’t that make your heart swell, mamas? When you learn your little one is being compassionate. Do you wonder where they have learned to be so loving? If you’re like me you breathe a deep sigh of relief because you know how short you fall in practicing compassion in your own home.
I love the way Ifeoma prioritizes SHOWING kids how to act over simply explaining. What a huge job we have as parents to mold these little hearts!
Mamas take a few minutes and read these great ideas of teaching our babies how to love!!!!
