Putting Compassion in Action
When parents, teachers and experts talk about education, what typically come up are subjects like reading, writing, arithmetic. But research shows that growing the heart is key to the development of an altruistic, empathetic, kind human being.
Our resource-rich September cover feature story explores the Charter for Compassion, which seeks to literalize the Golden Rule, not simply as a statement of principle, but as a summons to people and educators all over the world to take creative, practical, and sustained action to create a just economy and a more peaceful world.
As our children's first and most important teacher, we as parents know that modeling compassion starts at home. ParentMap invites readers to join in our month-long focus on compassion — each day through this portal and our Facebook page we will be sharing new ideas and practices parents can incorporate into their daily family lives and school communities to cultivate compassion in themselves and in their children.
