Experts say that with bullying and cyberbullying on the rise, face-to-face interpersonal skills are declining. Lynne Azarchi, executive director of Kidsbridge Tolerance Center, and Kathleen Megahan, education director at Kidsbridge, highlight strategies and tactics to promote and instill empathy, kindness and compassion in your children, family or students.
These strategies are informed by Kidsbridge Tolerance Center programs and Azarchi's book, "The Empathy Advantage: Coaching Children to Be Kind, Respectful and Successful," which explains why empathy is critically important and how it can be taught in easy and fun ways. Kidsbridge Tolerance Center in Ewing is dedicated to teaching bullying prevention, anti-bias, diversity appreciation, empathy and empowerment strategies for youth. Kidsbridge has educated more than 30,000 children since 1996.
