What the young British rioters really lack
British Prime Minister David Cameron, addressing Parliament on this week's riots, talks about morality and parenting.
Where children’s moral sense starts
Kids increasingly lack “moral sense.”
But why? And what can we do about it?
Are babies born moral?
“Babies know the difference between good and evil at six months, study
reveals”. I guess many of us read a heading like this in our daily paper
or online this week. Startling news. Here we were, thinking that the
newborn babe is a tiny barbarian who needs to learn his first notions of
right and wrong from his parents, when he actually arrives with an
innate sense of morality. Or so it seems.
