Empathy is the ability to sense other people’s emotions and imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling. It is a trait that must be taught and nurtured – to confront today’s self-bsorption epidemic, and to enhance a child’s ability to collaborate, innovate, and problem-solve.

In UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World (June 2016), author Dr. Michele Borba shares a revolutionary, researched-based, nine-step plan for reversing the Selfie Syndrome. Participants will come away with real world strategies to give kids the Empathy Advantage and a real success edge. Learn why self-control is a better predictor of wealth, health and happiness than grades or IQ and how to reclaim face-to-face conversation and kids emotional lives in a plugged-in world.

Join us and gain the results we all want: successful, happy kids who also are kind, moral, courageous, and resilient. Here is a blueprint for parents and educators who want to shift their kids focus from I, me, and mine … to we, us, and ours.


Michele Borba, Ed.D., is an internationally renowned educational psychologist and an expert in parenting, and character development. She is an award-winning author of twenty-two books translated into fourteen languages, and an NBC contributor who appears regularly on Today.
