Educating Our Children’s Hearts

In November 2016, a university in Vadodara, India hosted a panel discussion titled “Education for Compassion: Rethinking Means and End,” seeking to answer how schools, parents, and communities can prepare children to lead more compassionate rather than competitive lives. One of the panelists, Meghna Banker, is a graphic designer, volunteer, and a full-time mother home-schooling her daughter. In her talk she shared reflections on parenting, illustrated by inspiring personal stories with her daughter. Ultimately, she shares how her journey as a mother has been at its core, an attempt to embody wholesome qualities and explore the “unison of our head, hands and hearts.” Watch or read the transcript of her quietly profound talk here.
