Children in today’s world are exposed to cyberbullying, terrorist attacks on the news, violent video games, and more. Studies show that kids are 40% less empathetic than they were thirty years ago. Is the world that they live in today to blame? What is the cause of this loss of empathy? Michele Borba shares with us about why children need empathy and how we can teach our children to be less selfish in our “all-about-me world.”
