As adults, we want children to show sensitivity and kindness to the feelings of others. We can encourage children in our care to help those in need, be concerned at others unhappiness and understand how our actions affect people. Parents and teachers should model caring behaviour by helping people in need, being sensitive to the feelings of others and using respectful words. Reinforce a caring attitude by reading the books from the caring book list below.

It’s in our interest to take care of others. Self-centredness is opposed to basic human nature. In our own interest as human beings we need to pay attention to our inner values. Sometimes people think compassion is only of help to others, while we get no benefit. This is a mistake. When you concern yourself with others, you naturally develop a sense of self-confidence . To help others takes courage and inner strength.
