How to raise compassionate children

Actually, I have no idea how to raise compassionate children. My kids are naturally compassionate. For example, here is a typical response from each of my children while I'm violently heaving in the bathroom:

Garrett: Are you ok, Mom? Is there anything I should do?

Hannah: Can I get you something Mom? Some water or a wet washcloth?

Kevin: Are you done throwing up yet? (with a whine) You still didn't fix my transformer!

Of course, it is usually only Kevin home when I'm heaving, so I get SOOO much sympathy.
