Are you a proud parent with a new baby? Will your baby be 2 – 4 months old in October?
You and your baby could be a Roots of Empathy Family.
Roots of Empathy is a program for elementary school children. The program’s aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand how another person feels. Children learn to care for and respect each other, and there is less bullying and aggression.
Be a Roots of Empathy Family.
- A baby with one or both parents visits a local classroom over the course of a school year with a Roots of Empathy Instructor.
- The visits are about 30 minutes long, once a month starting in October.
- The program helps children to learn about a baby’s needs and how babies developand lets children observe the loving relationship between a parent and baby.
- Babies must be between 2 and 4 months old in October.
