End your day with “High low high”
This is a quick exercise you can do around the dinner table or as a family before bedtime.
Have each member of your family recall a high point, a low point and then another high point of their day or week. Take time to listen to each person and ask questions if you want. In order to practice empathy for someone else, we need to understand their journey.
For your kids, it’s very beneficial to hear what went well in your day, what you are proud of and also the challenges you are working through. For parents, this is a great way to get your kids talking about the specifics of their day and improve your parental empathy for the daily rain they face.
