The Holiday season is about caring for others. For your mom, dad, dog or friend. Whoever it might be, we decide to do something nice for another person, to make that person feel special. Understanding how my actions will make others feel is important. That is why we in this week’s “1 minute Peppy Parenting” will continue practicing empathy.
Exercise; Have your child decide someone he or she would like to do something nice for and then decide what to do. Maybe it’s to bake a cake, draw a painting, help out at home, pick up the trash etc. The list can be made long.
Ask; How come you choose him/her/them?
- How do you think he/she/they felt before? Afterwards?
- How did you feel before? Afterwards?
- Has anyone done something nice for you? How did it feel?
Purpose; To practice empathy by doing something for someone else.
Want to experience more; Remember that we affect each other every day. What you say, do and don’t do will make you and others feel differently. Using our games Peppy Pals Farm and Peppy Pals Beach lets your child interact with our cute animals and help them deal with their emotions in various situations.
