PUT YOURSELF IN SOMEONE ELSE'S SHOES: Building Character
Empathy is a vital human quality, and young children often need help understanding the importance of putting themselves in "someone else's shoes". Empathic kids get along better with peers and adults, can see things from differing points of view, bring sensitivity to their interactions with others, and can more readily resolve conflicts. Open-ended scenarios prompt discussion of this important issue for things like feeling sad for someone else's loss, feeling left out, sharing someone's disappointment, and teasing.
