Thoughtful Tuesday: Is Compassion an Important Trait in Children?

Compassion and love are not a luxury.

As the source both of inner and external peace, they are fundamental to the survival of our species.

~ Dalai Lama

Instilling compassion in a child is just as important as developing muscle strength or brain power. 

It enables them to connect to other humans, care, understand, and bring comfort to those around them. Research shows that compassion plays a key role in helping children develop their social and civic identities as well as grow up into engaged and optimistic adults.

But it all starts at HOME!
