Students get first-hand lesson on Japan devastation

Are we raising emotionally intelligent kids?  The recent crisis in Japan is a current event that provides an opportunity to discuss empathy and the calamaties that others face. 

Our kids pray for the Japanese every night and my daugther has decided to host another lemonade stand (the other was for Haitians after the earthquake) to raise money for the cause.  I also encouraged her to ask her teacher to coordinate a group philanthropic activity for her class. 

Check out this news story out of Charlotte, NC.  See how this school is teaching third graders about Japan:  the devastation, the language and culture. 

Congrats to Chocolate Chip kid Tasan Gandy-Smith on his television debut!
