"Children who learn cooperatively (compared with those who learn competitively or independently) learn better, feel better about themselves and get along better with each other." -Alfie Kohn, author of No Contest: The Case Against Competition. 📚 What lead us all to a generation that suffers from the popular ‘Selfie Syndrome’ ? A combination of simple things like reduced unstructured/unsupervised outdoor playtime for kids, over scheduling of kids with extra curricular activities, raising kids to win the competition and much more. How can we raise kids to be Unselfie? Per Michele Borba, parents can accomplish this via a combination of simple strategies like exposing kids to diverse literature from early on, encouraging them to have a diverse group of friends, teaching them to always focus on similarities vs differences between themselves and the people they encounter in their daily lives , placing emphasis regularly on collaboration and cooperation vs competition, planning family activities and projects that encourage collaboration and teamwork, cutting down scheduled activities to provide free time for the entire family, etc. Michele Borba argues that empathy muscles need to be exercised regularly in our kids to strengthen them . 📚 There isn't any rocket science here but it is still a very important subject in today's over scheduled, competitive world. Really enjoyed this chapter titled “Empathic children think 'Us' not 'Them’” in #micheleborba ’s Unselfie.

Lola😇 és Adrienn😇 @adam_adrienn adománygyűjtő kampányának kapcsán fogtam fel igazán, hogy a Mosoly szakemberei igazi csodát visznek véghez nap mint nap!🙏 Én hiszem, hogy ezek a támogatások igen is jó helyre kerülnek és szükség van rájuk! ❣️ Idén, az Ultrabalatonon a céges csapatunk a Mosoly Alapítványért futott 🏃♀️🏃♂️ (a korábbi évekhez hasonlóan) és a futás öröme mellett extra élmény volt számunkra, hogy 21 mosolygós gyerek futáshoz is hozzájárulhattunk egy-egy pár új futócipővel. 👟💝 Érdemes pár percet eltölteni a @mosolyalapitvany honlapján, elgondolkodtató! 💚 #adnijó#nemrólamszól#adakozókedd#unselfie#charity#mosolyalapitvany#mosoly#futás
This month, the theme in our house is empathy. I am greatly inspired by my #currentread : Unselfie by Michele Borba, which is geared towards helping parents raise empathic children. I gathered some picture book recommendations from this book that are geared towards fostering empathy in younger kids and put them on hold at our library. I picked these up from the library a couple of days ago and already read a few of them to my boys. I have been asking questions and gently encouraging them to identify feelings, take the perspectives of various characters in these books, etc. It’s amazing to see how much they know already! . 📚 Teaching empathy to younger children starts with teaching them self regulation skills first. There are a couple of books in this stack that are geared towards this as well. In fact, teaching self regulation is the biggest challenge that I face with my four year olds at the moment. So, I can never have enough books on this subject. 📚 I am thankful that Michele Borba’s Unselfie came to me during the holiday season. It’s a perfect month to learn and practice empathy. Empathy cannot be taught by lecturing or nagging or labeling our kids as entitled for not showing empathy. I am saying this because I see this happening all around me. Empathy can be taught only by modeling it to our kids constantly (eg: showing empathy when our kids make mistakes as opposed to punishing them), by making it a core family value and reinforcing it at every opportunity. Books are a great way to accomplish this because my kids are always interested in a good story. I would think that most kids are wired in this way. I will try to post reviews of the books that we really liked from this stack as and when I am able to.
If you're not gaining something from service, you're doing it wrong. . We're not talking recognition, awards, or . By gaining something, we mean things like ✔ A new friend ✔ A new skill ✔ A sense of community ✔ A new perspective Or as our man Gandi put it... ✔ finding yourself . Service was a way we came together as a couple and continues to be at the center of our relationship. That's why it's the topic of this week's podcast! .
