How to Raise an Empathetic Teen
Crack open the newspaper or tune into the neighborhood Facebook group, and you can find plenty of examples of intolerance. Teens have the potential to lead the world into taking a stand for civility, but they need support to be their best, empathetic selves. Highlight their strengths so they’re aware of their gifts, help them see the value in differences, underscore the importance of treating everyone with respect, and mentally prepare them for the possibility that they may witness bigotry and hate. Get your teen ready to live in a diverse world.
