Why do I need the empathy band? Parenting with the empathy band will help you remember to stop, think and then respond. It’s so easy for a parent to jump in with anger or frustration when their child is not compliant. All it takes is just us seeing the world through their eyes to understand what is sparking their emotional upheaval. When a parent provides empathy, the child is less likely to stay in a distressful state. Wearing the empathy band will always remind you that your child deserves the best, which is love, guidance and empathy.
