In this episode, I talk to Dr. Shauna Tominey about her book, Creating Compassionate Kids: Essential Conversations to Have with Young Children.

The main purpose of her book is to support adults to build compassion and understanding through the conversations we have with children. 

What You Will Learn

  1. How to model compassion by letting children know they are loved no matter who they are or what they experience
  2. How to support children in becoming self-aware, while also understanding differences among people and families
  3. How to build resilience in children by discussing how stress or tragedy can make us stronger
  4. How to help children use their recognition of being loved, their self-awareness, understanding of others, and personal resilience to demonstrate compassion for others

We also talk about the progression of inclusion, how compassion addresses bullying, and the importance of explaining what you are doing and why.
