Le manque d'empathie représente un véritable danger. Et les adolescents d'aujourd'hui ont 40 pour cent de moins d'empathie que les adolescents d'il y a trente ans. Ce manque affecte les performances scolaires des enfants et conduit au harcèlement. Il les pousse à davantage de triche scolaire et à moins de résilience.
Dans Le Syndrome du selfie, Michele Borba examine les causes de ce déficit et, pour l'enrayer, propose un plan révolutionnaire en neuf étapes, fondé sur des études scientifiques. Comme l'empathie s'enseigne et peut se muscler, Michele Borba nous offre un cadre dans lequel déployer une parentalité efficace pour atteindre nos objectifs : des enfants heureux qui réussissent, tout en faisant preuve de gentillesse, de sens moral et de courage.
