Description
"According to Michele Borba, the woman Dr. Drew calls "the most trusted parenting expert in America," there's an empthy crisis among today's youth, who she dubs the "selfie generation." But the good news is that empathy is a skill that can -- and must -- be taught, and in UNSELFIE (her first book for a general trade audience) Borba offers a 9-step program to help parents cultivate empathy in children, from birth to young adulthood"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
"Bestselling author Michele Borba offers a 9-step program to help parents cultivate empathy in children, from birth to young adulthood--and explains why developing a healthy sense of empathy is a key predictor of which kids will thrive and succeed in the future. In our hyper-connected, social-media-saturated society, many of us (especially young people) are so obsessed with snapping "selfies" and living a virtual life online that we're forgetting how to care for the people right in front of us IRL (that's "in real life"). The resulting Selfie Syndrome is leading to an empathy crisis among today's youth--teens today are forty percent less empathetic than they were just a generation ago, and narcissism has increased fifty-eight percent during that same period. But there is a solution: studies show that the antidote to Selfie Syndrome is empathy. And the good news is that empathy can actually be cultivated in children, starting even before they can talk. In UnSelfie, esteemed educator Dr. Michele Borba presents new and compelling research that explains how to impart this key skill to kids--whether it's teaching toddlers how to comfort one another or giving teens the tools to stand up to bullying--and why empathy paves the way for future happiness and success. Caring about others isn't just about playing nice; it's a skill that's vital for children's mental health, leadership skills, and continued well-being, today and tomorrow. Dr. Borba's 9-step plan for raising successful, happy kids who also are kind, moral, courageous, and resilient provides a revolutionary new framework for learning empathy. Empathetic kids will thrive in the future, but the seeds of success can be planted today--one habit at a time"--,Provided by publisher.
