How to raise a compassionate child

We all want to raise children who show compassion and kindness to others, but sometimes we expect too much, too soon. It’s natural that very young children focus on themselves. They just aren’t developmentally ready to understand how others feel. This will come with time though, and as parents, there are a few ways we can really help.
