As a Character Educator, I have always been a supporter of teaching empathy where empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. In a way that I think best describes it is the ability to ‘step into someone’s shoes’, to be able to step into a person’s situation figuratively and to see things from his or her perspective. It’s a skill that enables people to build connection, nurture relationships and create kind communities.
