The Pat Kenny Show in Ireland learns about tiny teacher, baby Dave, and Roots of Empathy:
Boys in 2nd and 3rd class in Scoil na mBuachaillí in Clonakilty are taking part in a unique programme which aims to develop their empathy.
Experts believe we are all born with an innate capacity to understand other people’s perspective, but if it’s not nurtured early it can diminish over time.
At the heart of the Roots of Empathy programme is the community volunteer and their child. In this case it’s Clonakilty resident Lisa Crowley and her son, Baby Dave.
