Art and Stories by Children who are Changing the World

We Should Pause


What can Roots of Empathy teach the world? "We should pause to help us keep from hurting others."

Helping children develop self regulation in Roots of Empathy classes, like this child from a Grade one class in Kneehill, allows them to reflect and pause before responding. This prevents many potential bullying episodes. Roots of Empathy is a brake against bullying and other aggressions. This child is a changer.
