A great way to help teach compassion — Mommy Daze

TeachingCompassion02It was one of those days where if I heard my child say “I want ...” one more time, I was going to scream.

Then I got a text from a friend, who is currently home-schooling her daughter, asking if I wanted to join them at a Compassion Experience. It's a free event put on by Compassion International, and was held at a church in Glen Burnie last week. I had just been talking about it with another friend who had taken her 6-year-old son and raved about it.
