Best Empathy Games, Apps, and Websites for Kids
No one will deny that screens have completely changed the ways that kids and teens interact, but the question of whether they make them more or less empathic is somewhat up for debate. Luckily, we've found that high-quality media can help kids build empathy. After all, aren't most games about putting yourself in the player's shoes to overcome obstacles? These awesome digital tools help teach kids to think about how other people feel and to emphasize the value of human relationships -- even from behind a screen.
