Learning empathy can be difficult for kids to learn or know how to explain.
We talk a lot about recognizing what other people are feeling and how to react. Developmentally it will take children many years to empathize on a regular and consistent basis but small steps over time remind us all of the importance of this habit. Talking about empathy with the kids is an important character trait to practice with kids. This game is perfect!
