InSight of Caring


Welcome to In Sight of Caring


This website is made possible through the support of the School of Family Studies and Human Services at Kansas State University. Its purpose is to focus on a set of core qualities that serve as the foundation for communities: compassion, courage, conscience, sacrifice, kindness, empathy and related abilities. What insight do we have about how these skills are formed and evolve? Why are they important and how do we nurture them in children and guide them over time at all ages? Each section of the site builds knowledge and provides its practical application for parents and teachers. The emphasis is on the how we can become great at any age, though true insight can only be achieved by understanding what happens when the qualities of caring fail to appear.

“It is not what we give but what we share, 

for the gift without the giver is bare.”
