A huge problem for kids is distracted parents. 62% of kids say their parents are often distracted when they try to talk to them. It’s hard to listen when you have a phone ringing, dinner on the stove, dogs barking, and the TV blaring. But we have to start taking the time to do it. #empathy #kindness #dogood #bekind #calm #compassion #kids #children #students #parents #parenting #behavior #nurturing #family #education #teachers #emotions #feelings

Nearly 4 in 5 LGBTQ students don’t see positive LGBTQ representation in their curriculum, and almost a third miss school for feeling unsafe or uncomfortable. The Day of Silence is a national movement by @glsen to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ students in school, which demands that school leaders take action to be more inclusive. #dayofsilence #glsen #lgbt #gay #lgbtq #love #lesbian #pride #loveislove #bisexual #queer #transgender #trans #gaypride #pansexual #nonbinary #asexual #lgbtpride #bullying #gender #gendernorms #toxicmasculinity #stopbullying #antibullying #endbullying #bullyingprevention #standuptobullying #bullyinghurts

Yesterday, our fearless foundress @lysaheslov colored with kids in shelters at the border. In 2011, she danced with the children of DR Congo. Under her unwavering leadership, Children Mending Hearts always has been and always will be a way for children to connect through the arts, spreading empathy throughout the USA and across the world. . . . #lysaheslov #art #arts #artexchange #artclass #artsed #arted #artteacher #arteducation #artist #painting #artwork #artstudio #elementaryart #kidsart #creative #elementaryartteacher #creativity #kids #artschool #fun #grade #artteacherlife #kidart #artcollective #congo #drcongo

Our “Empathy Rocks in the USA” 4th grade classes in Wyoming finished their empathy lesson about the effects of Hurricane Katrina just one week after devastating tornadoes hit Alabama. Their teacher, Ms. Hayward, let them decide how they wanted to help that community in need. One class wrote letters to the school who lost a 4th grader in the tornadoes to let them know they had a friend looking out for them. The other class wrote to the Red Cross volunteers who helped with the disaster. The @americanredcross wrote back to EVERY kid, and sent pins and a large collector coin. . . . . #redcross #americanredcross #help1family #giveback #volunteers #students #inspirational #empathy #support #love #community #encouragement #gratitude #strength #positivity #education #children #service #socialgood #4change#dogood #change #learning #teaching #leadership #students

Remember: you’ve got to give respect to get it, even with children.  The more respect you show for the thoughts and feelings of others, the more respect you will find you get from them in return.  Patience is a virtue! #empathy #ichooseempathy #respect #childrenarepeopletoo #love #judgementfreezone #kindness #compassion #kids #children #parents #parenting #behavior #nurturing #family #education #teachers #emotions #feelings #quote #quotestoliveby

If we don’t change, we don’t grow.

Empathy can change the world. Spending time with and learning about people who are different from us is one way that we can build a larger, global community where everyone matters. People are more likely to help others when they feel they have something in common with that other person, and helping your child build a diverse group will help them find more commonalities and make them more likely to help. #children #kids #love #family #happy #child #kid #empathy #compassion #kindness #peace #mindfulness #understanding #inspiration #positivity #respect #bekind #art #unity #leadership #happiness #kids #students

Kids model their behavior off of the adults that they’re around. When kids are upset or overwhelmed, the best course of action is to share calmness and kindness! #empathy #kindness #dogood #bekind #calm #compassion #kids #children #students #parents #parenting #behavior #nurturing #family #education #teachers #emotions #feelings

In addition, the report "Living the Arts through Language + Learning" showed that young people with high arts involvement were 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, and 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance. #education #learning #school #learn #art #arteducation #fun #teaching #study #kids #knowledge #teacher #children #student #students #artclass #arted #artsed #artteacher

The words that we say matter, and the way we say them have a lasting effect.

@daddyfiles recently shared the story of his middle child Sam, a rough and tumble “boy’s boy” who thinks that polished nails are beautiful. He wore his red nails to school and got bullied by his kindergarten classmates. With a “huge heart and #empathy for miles,” this is the first time Sam’s become afraid to do something that makes him happy. After encouragement from his parents, and the rest of the world, Sam continues to wear his painted nails to school. We’re painting our nails for you, Sam! And remember to paint your nails blue to show that you support a bully-free future! #TeamSam #fingernails #nailpolish #gender #gendernorms #parenting #toxicmasculinity #stopbullying #antibullying  #endbullying #antibullyingmonth #bullyingprevention #bullyingpreventionmonth #cyberbullying #kids #standuptobullying #bullyinghurts #bluenailsbullyfree

“I thought I was going to die because it burned my hair so fast,” are the chilling words from 13-year-old Nevaeh Robinson. At a bus stop, a bully lit her hair on fire while other students watched and laughed. Thankfully her wounds are cosmetic, but the trauma she endured will last a lifetime. @childrenmendinghearts continues to work hard everyday to make sure instances like this never happen again. #nevaehrobinson #stopbullying #antibullying #nomorebullying #saynotobullying #bullying #bullyinghurts #kindness #togetherness #kindnesswins #empathyrocks #empathy #bekind

Empathy is the awareness of the feelings and emotions of other people. It is the link between ourselves and others because it is how we understand others experiences as if we were feeling them ourselves. 💙❤️ #kindness #empathy #empathyrocks #ichooseempathy #positivity #love #dogood #bekind #mindfulness #awareness #feelings #emotions #❤️

People who struggle with drugs or alcohol, whether they’re famous or not, deserve compassion and empathy. We are often too quick to speculate, judge and moralize, but understanding addiction and finding empathy for those who face this disease make our world a more compassionate place. #demilovato #demistrong #compassion #addiction #understanding #empathy #recovery #chances #❤️

Research shows that intolerance is a key factor in bullying. Bullies often target a victim based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, appearance or sexual orientation. Why? It’s because empathy — the foundation of tolerance— is lying dormant. #tolerance #empathy #themissingpiece #caring #respect #bullying

More than 100 books and notes of love were collected. If you want to help comfort the thousands of children who are missing their parents just like the Edwards family, see our link in bio!

Lessons in empathy and understanding: today our students created paper snakes. Snakes are one of nature’s most misunderstood animals. While mostly harmless, hundreds of snakes are killed every year because of misconception and fear. But snakes shed their skin and there’s more to discover underneath. The same can be said of people - we can’t judge someone by what’s on the outside because there is always something more below the surface. #art #createunderstanding #respect #morethanmeetstheeye #differences
