Compassion for Others

Today on Tuesday@10 (or Saturday at 12:40, when I recorded this), we define compassion and talk about having compassion for others, especially our kids.

Sympathy: Feeling sorry for another’s hurt
Empathy: Walking in another’s shoes
Compassion: Love in action

As parents, we have the huge responsibility of impacting our child’s inner voice/inner critic. Responding to them compassionately doesn’t mean that we indulge them or refuse to discipline, but our “love in action” is having the long term goal in mind and helping them reach it through loving discipline and problem solving teamwork.
