Developing Empathy in Kids

Power of Understanding

What is empathy? And why, in the midst of a pandemic, is it more important than ever to help our children develop it? Join Amanda Morin, Scarborough resident and author of the new children's book, What Is Empathy: A Bullying Storybook for Kids for a conversation about why empathy is such an important skill to teach, what you can do to begin cultivating empathy in your children, and the importance and power of parenting and teaching from a place of empathy.

August Book On Tap

Book Jacket

The selection for the August Books on Tap discussion group, How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. This book, and Kendi's earlier award winning book on racism, Stamped from the Beginning, will be discussed at that August meeting. We skipped July to give you a chance to read Stamped from the Beginning if you have time (800+ pages, but well worth it). Join us in August even if you only have time to read one of them!
