February's Character Connection:
Children learn empathy by watching and experiencing our empathy for them. They also notice by watching how you interact with others.

Here are some discussion points to talk about empathy with your child:
  • Identify and make connections between multiple thoughts, behaviors, and feelings with your child.
  • Talk about ways you can build a "climate" of empathy in the home and community.
After School Enrichment
