Lantieri, Linda
Our Children, v27 n6 p4-5 Apr-May 2002
Discusses how to use world events such as the September 11th attacks to nurture the development of empathy and compassion in children, suggesting what families can do to foster empathy (e.g., build safe, caring, and respectful homes; provide opportunities to talk about thoughts and feelings; encourage thoughtful dialogue about issues raised by the September 11th attacks and other concerns children have; and teach about prejudice and discrimination).
