The article discusses the Roots of Empathy program in Glasgow, Scotland and Northern Ireland that is designed to teach young schoolchildren to empathize with others, improve classroom behavior, and reduce school bullying and violence. The program involves regular classroom visits during the school year by a parent and a young baby, whereby schoolchildren observe the baby's development and the infant-mother relationship's development over the months. Research shows that boys respond most to the program and become more engaged in it.
