Raising Children Who Care About Others and Their Communities

December 1, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Presenter – Luba Falk Feigenberg, Ed.D.; Research Director, Making Caring Common

Children face complicated situations that challenge their notions of right and wrong every day. Parents and caregivers often struggle to talk with their children about these situations and to help guide children’s social and ethical development.  This presentation will share research about children’s social, emotional, and ethical development and describe the skills that contribute to success in relationships, in school, and in life. Strategies will be shared for building empathy and perspective taking, and for helping children be more compassionate in their everyday interactions.
