什么是同情心?

简单地说,同理心是能够思考和关心他人的感受和需求。好消息是,我们的研究越多,似乎孩子们是善意的。我们所需要的只是培养它 - 当然现在总是容易的。Even though young children are simply working on gaining control over their emotions and won’t learn to really think about their emotions and the cause and effect of their behavior on others until their school years, they can start to develop the foundation for empathy much earlier. Taking actions (and watching adults take actions) that benefit other people, caring for animals and their environment and even just wondering how other people or creatures are feeling helps build both positive habits and a strong base for the development of empathy.

为什么这有关系?

同理心是在什么心理学家称之为“亲社会”行为的根源 - 人们必须发展的行为,以发展良心,建立密切的关系,保持友谊,发展强大的社区。同理心也有助于孩子们避免欺凌,这是年轻的孩子们的最令人担忧的社会挑战之一。能够思考和觉得别人可以让孩子们成为欺负或受害者,并装备他们站起来为被欺负的人站起来。想象一下,如果所有的孩子都有这样的工具!
