A final card from Bret Nicholaus and Tom McGrath’s “The Meal Box”:
“Suppose you were told that you could have one wish come true – but that wish you make would have to be for someone else, not for yourself. What would you wish for, and for whom would you wish it?
Food for Family Thought: Empathy is a fundamental building block for all moral growth. Make it a family value to frequently consider how your behavior and choices affect others. When your child talks about other children’s experiences, gently ask, ‘And how do you thinks he/she felt about that?’ This will nuture your child’s capacity for compassion.”
