Empathy Month At Lee

This month at Lee, we are learning all about empathy. Empathy is defined as: being able to understand how someone else is feeling, even when you aren't in the same situation. We've been exploring this topic using two steps: 1) Connecting with how the other person is feeling 2) How can I show them that I care. Join us by talking about empathy with your children at home!
