Roots of empathy-an evidence-based program developed in 1996 by longtime educator and social entrepreneur Mary Gordon-has already reached more than 270,000 children in Canada, the U.S., Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Now, as The New York Times reports that "empathy lessons are spreading everywhere amid concerns over the pressure on students from high-stakes tests and a race to college that starts in kindergarten," Mary Gordon explains the value of and how best to nurture empathy and social and emotional literacy in all children-and thereby reduce aggression, antisocial behavior, and bullying.

It is absolutely wonderful to read something that speaks of emotional intelligence. My own feeling is that it is too easy to get into the habit of comparing our child's progress to another child, and measuring their physical and academic capabilities, rather than their emotional capabilities. Empathy is so important to how we understand ourselves and treat one another. With elevated empathy skills we become better individuals who are less likely to become aggressive and behave antisocially. Some people may argue that this is just about a good upbringing, but I feel that in this day and age there needs to be a pro-active approach in schools, if only to temper the competitivity that is fostered there.
