Much of my “educational style” is based on teaching empathy to my children through my example.⁣
Empathy is something I had to learn myself in order to use it with and towards my children - especially during crisis (“tantrums”), when they seem to cry for nothing, when I don't understand them, when it feels like they’re challenging me…⁣
Those are the times when, if I show empathy, they learn it. They learn it for the next time, for when they argue with their siblings, for when a friend hits them at the playground.⁣
If I am not a parent who learns to be a parent, I cannot expect my children to be people who learn to be people.⁣
