When it comes to getting kids to behave well the "why" is as important as the "how." In Learning to Listen, Learning to Care children learn why it is important to follow rules and behave considerately toward others. This cultivates empathy which contributes not just good behavior, but to academic and social success. By doing the series of fun and engaging exercises in this book kids learn how to recognize the impact of their behaviour on others, express emotion in appropriate ways, and learn how and why to compromise with family and friends. Behavioural problems among children are at an all-time high in the U.S. Parents of nearly 2.7 million children say that their kids suffer from severe emotional or behavioural problems that interfere with their family life or learning. A staggering 50 percent of counselling referrals are for behavioural problems. Empathy is the anecdote to many of them, according to child psychologist and author Lawrence Shapiro. In Learning to Listen, Learning to Care he teaches the empathy and self-control that can reduce behavioural problems and lead to long-term success.
