Adam Grant, a professor of psychology at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, recently wrote “Raising a Moral Child,” for the New York Times Sunday Review. This article has been spreading to friends and family through social media and e-mail. It supports what we see so frequently in session; parents care about raising caring and just children.

Grant states, “genetic twin studies suggest that anywhere from a quarter to more than half of our propensity to be giving and caring is inherited. That leaves a lot of room for nurture…” This leave parents with 75% of the morality lessons.
