The Times wrote an excellent article about fostering empathy in our children - be sure to check it out here!
"Unless we free up time for relationships, we may be raising a generation of kids who can’t see past their smartphones and jam-packed schedules to notice the human beings in front of them."
P.S. Also check out this Wallstreet Journal Article that breaks down the different parenting techniques children need at different stages. Hint: Empathy, support, social skills, and healthy relationships are common across all stages! ;)
