Character Education Videos: Caring

Albert Einstein once said, “Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality… This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

In less scientific terms, Einstein is suggesting that you get out of life what you put into it. If you want others to treat you with respect and kindness, you should treat them accordingly. It sounds simple enough, but it doesn’t always come naturally.

The following Flocabulary songs address the concept of sympathy and empathy. Below the songs, we have questions you can use to have a discussion about caring behavior. And don’t forget, Flocabulary has more songs and videos to teach Character Education.

  1. I love everybody even though alot of people get on me nerves, but anyways my dad is very important to me and he went to the doctor last Friday and his heart and lungs are shutting down on him and that is very scary to me because I’m only 14 and I dont want my dad to die at this age and hes only 35 that’s a very young age. I dont want to have to go through that at this time or age. It will be very hard for me and my family. I love my dad vey much for him to die. I at least want him to watch me graduate high school. He doesnt have to much longer, but I’m going to spend as much time with him as I can. He has been an aloholic since he was my age so if he dont change than it’s on him but I want him to change and become a christian before he dies so it will be easier on me, and if he dies and not living for god than it will hurt me even more. But will everybody reading this please pray for him when you get the time PLEASE this is very important for me and my family. His name is Dwayne Phillips so when you get the time pray for him and one prayer can do alot to him if you just believe and know that something is going to work out.
