In school management, there are need to teach empathy to students so that they can be better focused on personal development and growth. We see that teachers can keep a record using an attendance management system as well. We see that the children learn empathy both from watching us as well as from experiencing our empathy for them. We see that when we empathize with our children they develop trusting, secure attachments with us as well. We see that those attachments are key to their wanting to adopt our values as well as to model our behavior, and therefore to building their empathy for others as well.
We see that empathizing with our children takes many forms, including tuning in to their physical as well as emotional needs, understanding and respecting their personalities, at the same time taking a genuine interest in their lives as well as guiding them toward activities that reflect an understanding of the kind of people they are as well as the things they enjoy. We have seen that children also learn empathy by watching those we notice as well as appreciate. We know they’ll notice if we treat a server in a restaurant or a mail carrier as if they’re invisible as well. On the positive side, we see that they’ll notice if we welcome a new family in our child’s school or express concern about another child in our child’s class who is experiencing one challenge or another as well. We see that finally, it’s important for us to recognize what might be getting in the way of our empathizing as well.
Are they, for example, exhausted or maybe a little stressed? We see that our child pushes our buttons in a specific way that makes caring for her or him hard times at the same time. They can work on having family meetings as well and see that when they hold family meetings when there are family challenges or conflicts, as well as in those meetings give children a voice as well as encourage them to take the perspective of other family members. They can also work on listening carefully to their children’s views and ask the children to listen carefully to the views of others. We see that they can encourage empathy for peers. They can also ask children about their classmates as well as other peers. They can ask children when they’re in conflicts with peers to consider their peers’ perspectives as well.
They can work on reflecting on empathy as well as caring. They can work on noticing with their child when they’re together as well as someone who exhibits strong empathy or shows a lack of empathy either in their daily life or in a book or on television as well. They can also discuss why acts of empathy are important as well as why lacking empathy can be harmful at the same time. We see that we often talk about empathy as a quantity. For instance, we speak of children as having a lot of or a little empathy or as lacking empathy entirely as well. Yet we see that the issue often isn’t whether children can empathize or how much empathy they have. It is who they have empathy for as well. For most of us, we see that it’s not hard to have empathy for our family members as well as close friends.
We see that it’s also human nature to have empathy for people who are like us in some way as well. But we see that the real issue is whether children (as well as adults) have empathy outside that circle. We see that as parents as well as caretakers, it’s not only important that we model appreciation for many types of people. We see that it’s important that we guide children in understanding as well as caring for many kinds of people who are different from them and who may be facing challenges very different from their challenges as well. Often we see that when children don’t express empathy it’s not because they don’t have it but teachers can work on it. School ERP can help them as well.
