Young children are, quite often, much more empathetic and sympathetic than adults. Developing their empathetic nature is what parents need to work on.
Children, indisputably, are blessed with a number of gifts and talents. They bring with them a multitude of incredible skills and resources. Before we even try to explore their strengths, they already have taken baby steps to showcasing some of their talents and gifts.
They tend to give us an inkling into their interests and hobbies before we find their positive traits and competencies. As children, they showcase their hidden talents and give us a peak into their unique characteristics and traits. They make no secret of their creativity, intelligence and unique charm. Children try to bring their talents to the fore and express it to us, but quite often, we aren’t quick to open our eyes and applaud them for it.
As parents, we think it is our responsibility to discover their hidden potential and bring it to light. While they don’t lose any opportunity to give us an insight into their gifts and abilities. Quite often, we believe that we know what is better for our children and end up acting on our personal desires and goals. Instead of identifying their talents, we push our desires upon them.
People often believe it is important to teach and develop empathy within children and raise them with sensitivity and understanding. What they tend to forget is that children are already born with copious amounts of empathy and sympathy.
Children have several great qualities and empathy isn’t really an alien concept to them. The adults some times tend to forget all about it in their hurry to compete and to succeed in the rat race. Kids, on the other hand, retain their innocence and grateful behaviour towards all species and life forms.
Children show affection towards other species and if they have pets around them, helps them grow their enthusiasm and empathy. My own child has the natural ability to admire birds and other domestic animals like cats and dogs. She has often observed birds coming calling to our house and demanded they be fed and be given breakfast lest they starve. Her respect towards plants, trees and other ‘lesser beings’ indicates her level of sensitivity towards the life forms that inhabit earth.
She is just as sensitive towards humans too. I remember one time I’d pulled a muscle. And I watched my daughter empathise with my pain as she tried to grab me while I squirmed in pain and agony. I could already see heightened levels of empathy and sensitivity in her.
She, immediately, rushed to me to check if I was okay and drilled me with a number of questions probing to see if I needed to go see a doctor. What’s more was that she even came up with her personal recommendations and advice. It is extremely heartening to see her show the same degree of concern for her dad and grandparents. She ends up empathising with their suffering and even motivating and counselling them out of it.
As parents, it is imperative that we encourage and nurture their empathy and sensitivity instead of starting from scratch into developing it. Empathy is natural to the kids, so we just need to support them when it comes to their individuality and exclusive talents.
Isn’t that easy? But just remember if we fail to show them that we don’t support them in being empathetic they may lose or even forget how to empathise.

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
