Compassion is defined as ďdeep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.Ē But itís more than just that. Compassion is an attitude, a philosophy, a way of life. If a child learns compassion, all other scholarly pursuits are merely details in the scheme of life.

This program is designed to introduce compassion in three main areas:

Compassionate Kids Care About the EARTH

The Earth is vitally important to the survival of our species and everything we know. As a silent recipient to all the abuse inflicted upon her soil, air, and water, the Earth simply shifts in response to conditions, even to those that bring about irreparable harm. It is up to us to take action to protect the planet, our home, the beautiful silent Earth that needs us to speak on her behalf.

We must recognize the necessity of instilling this urgency upon our children, the next generation of our planetís protectors. Itís never too early to start teaching children to care about the Earth. Even toddlers should be gently guided to treat grass and other plants as living entities to be cared for.

Compassionate Kids will learn about recycling, saving energy, and choosing earth-friendly products. As a support to parents, teachers, and home educators, we will list on this website environmentally supportive curriculums, activities, recommended books, videos, magazines, articles, organizations, websites, and other earth-friendly resources.

Compassionate Kids Care About PEOPLE

Compassionate Kids learn about different cultures and all different types of people. They show respect and acceptance and learn about how to stand up for whatís right in the face of discrimination.

As a support to parents, teachers, and home educators, we will list on this website racially-diverse curriculums, activities, books, videos, magazines, articles, organizations, websites, and other people-friendly resources.

Compassionate Kids Care About ANIMALS

In the study of psychopaths, it has been proven that people who are cruel to animals rarely stop there. In fact, the U.S. National Parent-Teacher Association Congress was quoted as saying the following:

"Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind, and considerate in their [relations] with one another. Character training along these lines in youth will result in men and women of broader sympathies; more law-abiding-in every respect more valuable-citizens."

Compassionate Kids learn about respect for ALL living creatures; that all living beings exist for their own reasons, not for our benefit as a superior species. They learn the proper care of animals, including steps to help endangered animals, as well as animals in entertainment, laboratories, and factory farms.

As a support to parents, teachers, and home educators, we will list on this website animal-friendly curriculums, activities, books, videos, magazines, articles, organizations, websites, and other animal-friendly resources. FOOTER
