ISAAGNY EVENT: Raising Compassionate Kids @ 8:00pm

Join the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York for "Raising Compassionate Kids."

How can we teach children to consider and connect with all different types of people? 

How can we teach them to meet others with the dignity they deserve, even when they don't respect us in return?

Why are these skills important for our kids - and our society?

Compassionate kids are better equipped to practice inclusion, prioritize integrity, and choose love over hate. Join Simran Jeet Singh for a discussion of compassion - and how to raise children in a way that cultivates and supports the development of this character trait.

When: Monday, December 4th
Time: 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Cost: FREE
