A lovely article about how to grow empathy when children are young. In a way it is so simple but how many times do a child’s feeling get met with something very different?

‘Stop making that silly noise.’

‘There is no need for that behaviour.’

‘I’ll count to three and if you havn’t stopped crying by then you can go in your bedroom and stay there until you’ve calmed down.’
