Research indicates that most children are born compassionate. In order to ensure that they remain that way it’s important that parents serve as good role models.
An article on fatherly.com, Compassionate Children Come from Parents Who Do These 8 Things, explains how parents can foster compassion in their children. These include engaging in the following behaviors:
- Explaining their actions
- Expressing gratitude
- Avoid scolding their children in public
- Showing empathy
- Reading with their children
Parents also need to understand that it is important to be consistent and that it will take a long time for these types of lessons to stick. In other words, slow and steady wins the raise when it comes to raising children who genuinely care about others.
