Empathetic Kids and Grandfamilies
June 22, 2016
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews educational psychologist and character expert Michele Borba EdD about her book “UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World”. Parents want to raise empathetic, kind, compassionate children who will go on to achieve great success and enjoy true happiness. But why do studies find that kids today are 40% less empathetic than they were thirty years ago? Dr. Borba is a regular NBC TODAY contributor and is featured on CNN, Dr. Phil, Dateline, NBC Nightly News, and Dr. Oz. Kathryn also interviews University of Missouri doctoral candidate Karen Traylor-Adolph about the dynamics of grandfamilies and raising kinship children. More than 2.2 million children are being raised by their grandparents, other relatives or loved ones. Added financial strains caused by this living arrangement and subsequent legal issues create challenges and often push these “grandfamilies” into poverty.
