It’s that time of year when we begin to prepare for back-to-school. Typically, that involves new shoes, a new back pack; and for someone like me, used to revolve around brand new Laurentian pencil crayons. In any case, there are the necessary back to school supplies that are required. It’s important, though, to consider preparing for back to school from a mindset perspective. This recent post written by Homa Tavangar, Award-winning author Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World (Random House/Ballantine Books, 2009), can be found on www.edutopia.com. Ms. Tavangar’s piece resonated with us, and we believe you will find it insightful as well. The focus of this post is on empathy ~ and the invaluable role it plays in developing healthy attitudes and relationships.
