As a first time mum I read *all* the books I needed to raise my child.
Newborn sleep schedules? Got it.
Introducing peanuts? No problem!
Daycare waitlists? I’m on them.
But the really important things? Like raising decent human beings? Well, the books didn’t exactly cover that.
In the wild world of parenting in 2023, teaching empathy can seem like trying to nail jelly to a wall and the quest for raising compassionate kids can feel, well, really daunting.
So, armed with some optimism, I decided to try a week of empathy lessons with my spirited toddler. The journey was as enlightening as it was entertaining.
