Establishing a character with empathy is important for children. I know that as a parent the road is paved with pitfalls and possible mess-ups. I am bound to make plenty of mess-ups, because no parent is perfect, but I do believe that if my two girls can grow up to have an awareness of the needs of others, and are kind and caring in personality, then I will be the proudest parent around.
For this reason I am excited to be participating in this five part series along with four other awesome bloggers (you can see the full list at the end of this post). For my part, I have created some Empathy Dolls.
You will need
• A standard size toilet roll
