How to raise a caring, moral child: Parents want to but aren't sure how
A recent opinion piece from The New York Times shared research and analysis on raising moral children.
"Surveys reveal that in the United States, parents from European, Asian, Hispanic and African ethnic groups all place far greater importance on caring than achievement," Adam Grant wrote in the article. "These patterns hold around the world: When people in 50 countries were asked to report their guiding principles in life, the value that mattered most was not achievement, but caring."
Grant added that while many parents hope to raise caring children, they often don't know how. The article cites research that focuses on where morality comes from and how it can be taught to children in a way that lasts.
