Raising Caring Kids… Harvard’s “Making Caring Common Initiative


As we try and model empathy and compassion for our students and children, we are faced with the task of working against a lot of what they are seeing and hearing in the popular culture, and even in the news media. In an increasingly polarized adult world, we need to keep children at the heart of what we are modeling and promoting. Again, I return to Harvard’s initiative Making Caring Common. There is a lot of great information here for parents. Two terrific links:
