What is empathy? And why, in the midst of a pandemic, is it more important than ever to help our children develop it? Join Amanda Morin, Scarborough resident and author of the new children's book, What Is Empathy: A Bullying Storybook for Kids for a conversation about why empathy is such an important skill to teach, what you can do to begin cultivating empathy in your children, and the importance and power of parenting and teaching from a place of empathy. Amanda will provide some ways to get started and will answer your questions.
Developing Empathy in Kids: How Parents and Caregivers Can Help, a virtual presentation with time for questions throughout, is free to attend. To register and receive the Zoom link, please email ljnorvell [at] scarboroughlibrary.org with the names of those who wish to attend. If you’d like, include your question(s) about this important topic to be submitted to Amanda ahead of time.
When: Wednesday, August 5 at 6:30
