Teaching Children to Care.
Kobak, Dorothy, Ed.
Journal of Children and Youth, Fall 1981
This issue of the "Journal of Children and Youth" focuses upon caring and related issues. Learning to care is an educational process which includes dialogue periods, creativity techniques, and action projects. When the subject of caring is taught in the educational curriculum on a consistent basis, students have the chance to learn, develop, and practice the capacity for ethical concern, altruism, cooperation, and more. Students, educators, and parents have verified that lessons which focus on caring have improved individual mental health, family living, and friendships, and have provided opportunities to contribute to humane involvement in societal issues such as peace, prejudice, and poverty.
