Thoughtfulness: Engaging Empathy to Build Strong Brains

See on Scoop.itMobile Learning & Information Literacy

Helen was playing in the sandbox in the park, when a brawl between a brother and sister broke out near her. Helen looked up from her work to see them arguing over a shovel, knocking each other to the ground. She watched intently for a while then calmly looked around, found two more shovels, and walked over to them. She handed one to the brother and the other to his sister. The fighting stopped, the girl handed Helen the shovel they had been fighting over, and they all went back to playing happily in the sandbox.
