The Power of Vulnerability

I just read an article by Dr. Brene Brown that I’d like to share regarding the importance of teaching empathy to children. Dr. Brown, whose work focuses on the human connection, shares some important insights about empathy and how students learn to be emphatic through their interactions with others. If you are interested in reading the full article click here – Empathy is Tough to Teach, But is One of the Most Important Life Lessons. Additionally, if you are like me and you enjoy a good podcast or TEDTalk, you might also check out Dr. Brown’s 2010 TEDTalk, The Power of Vulnerability, in Houston.  tlb
