Perspective Taking

Empathy Project Habit 3 is: “Perspective taking.” This means the ability of a person to consider a situation from different points of view. It requires being able to put yourself in the other person’s position and imagine what you would think, feel and do in that situation.

How can parents help to develop perspective taking in children? Talking about feelings with children and reading stories and talking about how the characters feel is a good starting point. Please support us in developing children’s empathy. Thank you.
