Here at JJ Hill, we have been learning about empathy; a feeling or understanding what someone else might be feeling. Your child is learning how to pay attention to people’s faces and bodies to figure out how they may feel. Children who can identify feelings tend to get along better with others and do better in school than those who have a harder time identifying feelings.
Practice at Home: Help your child identify and name feelings, using physical clues to help. Name feelings as you, your child, or others are experiencing them.
When you have empathy for others, you can say or do many things to show your care.
