Empathy. It is so often lacking in our exchanges in society today. But how do you teach it to your children? The ability to understand and share in others’ feelings is something unique to the human experience. As parents, how do we foster the conversations that create a safe space to explore emotional intelligence and grow it within ourselves and our children? Join us for an insightful conversation with Heather Frommack, MS, RDN, CPTD. Heather is a veteran homeschooling mom of five awesome kids—by birth and international adoption. Her mission is to help normalize unity amidst diversity through the portals of empathy, Cultural Intelligence (CQ), and relationships. In her previous role as HSLDA’s Director of Outreach and Educational Consulting, she collaboratively built their first multicultural outreach program, which continues the work of cross-cultural bridge-building today. She shares from a biblical perspective, scholarly support, and humbled humor about how empathy and compassion can be created, nurtured, and fostered within your family and the greater community.
