Empathy

Over the last week Ruma Tahi has been learning about empathy and how 'putting yourself in other people's shoes' can help everyone. We are all practising doing this on a daily basis. Read the comments below to see the differing viewpoints as to what empathy is.

  8. I think empathy means that if you tell someone off and then they think that you are mean you should just put yourself in someones shoes and see what it would feel like to get told off. So to solve the problem you could say something nice to them.

  14. Empathy is when you put yourself in other people's shoes, including others. When you exclude others or take out your problems on them you are not showing empathy. Why I'm at home I'm going to do what mum tells me.

  53. Hi i'm Conroy from Waikowhai Primary School. I really liked this post because it talks about how you should wear other peoples shoes and try to feel how others feel. I remember when I was in Room 5 we had roots of empathy. I learnt how to think about others and how you treat them. I had fun in roots of empathy.
