empathy in kids
Just wanted to share a really sweet incident that happened with my daughter today. She’s 2 years 5 months old. She saw a little child (under 18 months) crying at our gym class. And kept asking me why is baby crying. I said because she’s sad. She paused for a moment and looked at the flowers I had just bought her for fun as she loves flowers. She turned to me and asked, “mama can I give the flowers to the baby so she’s happy?” I said of course, and off she went to the little girl. She looked at her and said for you and gave her the flowers. She hugged her and said don’t cry. And then she half hopped, half danced her way back into my arms.
