Good afternoon SUNS!
Today’s theme for our Bullying Awareness Week is – Awaken your capacity for Empathy!
Empathy skills help with conflict resolution and maintaining positive relationships. When students learn to put themselves in another’s shoes, they can develop new and more compassionate perspectives.
Today, students were asked to try to be empathetic toward someone. LISTEN to them, and RELATE to them to build relationships! Many of the classes reviewed different scenarios and discussed how they would feel in those scenarios. Students were asked to set a small goal to practice understanding someone else’s situation.
Talk to your children about Walking in Someone’s Shoes.
Keep up the good work SUNS!
