Ep. 60 - Rethinking Kindness, with Wendy Zacuto
We have a duty to teach children the ways of kindness and thoughtfulness within and throughout all of their actions. In this conversation, Wendy Zacuto deepens and expands the boundaries of what even our youngest students need and deserve to understand about the critical role of kindness in the world, which is in so much need of more kindness, more justice, more equity, more fairness, more compassion, more big picture awareness of the blind spots that we are often surprised to discover we have… and we are unknowingly passing along to the young children in our care.
