The Independent in Ireland talks about empathy:
Another Ashoka-backed initiative, Roots of Empathy, brings a local parent and infant into a classroom scenario every three weeks. The students observe the baby’s development and label the baby’s feelings. This programme is designed to help children become more competent at understanding the feelings of others – and thus their own – and it has been proven to reduce levels of aggression and bullying among school children. As initiatives go, it certainly beats a ‘Stop Bullying’ poster.
