When a child is born, they’re pure of heart; they’re good and want to show goodness and kindness by helping others. When helping children to develop empathy and doing for others one needs to show them how and then incorporate this behavior into their everyday living so that it becomes a habit. They will then learn to do for others without being asked because it’s something nice to do and it makes others feel good. This will become a daily habit. And what a wonderful habit to have. 🙂
