I was pretty young when I first heard that one of my siblings sat alone during lunch at school. It still makes me hurt to think of it. Why would other people do that? Students can be so cruel. But they don’t have to be. One of the centerpieces of Touchstone’s CiViL initiative is teaching empathy to students. Empathy starts when I ask myself how I feel. Then I ask how that other person might feel. Then I act kindly toward that other person. It doesn’t have to be difficult, but it does have to be intentional. That’s why we teach it. No one has to sit alone at lunch.
Want to make lunch a safe place for students? Help us teach empathy through CiViL!
