It Takes to Give

Delivery Method: 

Toddlers are wonderfully sensitive to the sound of a friend in distress. In this video we see a young girl move to give emotional support to an unhappy friend. Watch Allison (lavender shirt) express empathy for her friend by caressing the side of her head in a soothing manner. Similarly, the teacher caresses Allison’s head to affirm her caring gesture toward her classmate. Next, Allison reaches for her friend’s pacifier. BUT, the pacifier is already in her friend's mouth. What do you think Allison may have in mind as she reaches for the pacifier? Watch and then think about what this episode means.
