Empathy for Others

Even Little Ones Understand Empathy

Even at this early age, your baby is starting to understand and respond to your emotions, showing Empathy for Others. Help him understand feelings by putting a name to the emotions that both of you experience. Say something like, "Your smile shows me how happy you are," or, "I can see that you're sad; how can we make you feel better?" However, he may also become overwhelmed by his emotions at this age, so do your best to model calm and positive behavior to help him feel calm and secure.

Has your baby achieved the following Empathy for Others developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) he has already mastered to date!
