Japans Answer to teaching children empathy
This clip was passed to me yesterday and I was so deeply moved by it, I felt it important to pass it on. ‘Children Full of Life’ is a short documentry (separated into 5 x 10 mins clips on you tube) on a teacher in japan who is teaching his grade 4 students to develop empathy.
The depth of the little kids emotions and the ability they develop with this teacher to share them was deeply touching. I was moved to tears a few times, proud of them, proud of their courage. These little people are learning perhaps one of the most important human skills – empathy.
If schools around the globe, begin including in their ciriculum, lessons in empathy, compassion, remorse and forgiveness we may in the next generations, experience a whole new level at which humanity communicates.
I was inspired and so very proud of these boys and girls.
