Notes on UnSelfie by Michele Borba
I attended a parenting talk a while ago, and the speaker recommended the book UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World by Michele Borba. I recently finished reading it and thought it was decent. The book seemed to have a mnemonic/acronym for every situation, which I thought was clever but also tiring by the end. I did appreciate reading about all the different games and example activities that can help develop empathy in kids and the research behind why empathy helps kids succeed.
Below are my main notes and takeaways from the book.
