Mom wants to go to the store. Jimmy wants to keep playing games. Mom chooses empathy.

– When children are raised with recognition of and respect for their needs, they grow up respecting themselves and others.

– When children grow up hearing and using a language of compassion, they better understand and speak their own needs and the needs of others.

– When children grow up hearing and using a language of responsibility, they act responsibly as adults.

So… imagine a future generation of compassionate adults who truly get their own needs and the needs of others. A generation of adults who deeply understand the link between responsibility and power. How does this not lead to peace and prosperity?
