STARS OF EMPATHY
THE GAME THAT SHOWS CHILDREN EACH OTHER’S WORLD
A social-learning game that is all about empathy, engagement and collaboration.
‘I am not used to talk about myself, but it feels very natural’,
is one of the many positive reactions from children who have enjoyed playing Stars of Empathy.
Stars of Empathy is a board game comprising of questions, tasks and other exciting elements. It is a game which children can enjoy playing and at the same time it has a beneficial impact, in general, on their emotional development and, in particular, on their ability to understand others.
Paul van Lange, Professor of Psychology, VU University Amsterdam:
“It is not always easy for people, children and adults, to address these issues in a spontaneous way. This board game is therefore an ideal means for broaching important questions whilst having fun. […] There is every indication that this game brings children closer together”.
