With all the stress and pressure our kids face today, it’s never too early to help them begin to learn how to empathize with their peers. Being an INCLUDER is one way to do that. So what is an INCLUDER? An INCLUDER is:
- The first warm face you meet when you walk into an event alone.
- The person who notices you standing just outside the circle and gets everyone to take one step back.
- The person who introduces you to others with similar interests.
- The person who makes you feel a little less invisible.

- Help your child notice when someone is excluded.
- Ask, “How do you think they are feeling right now?”
- Ask, "What can you do to make a difference?"
It's never too early to start!
