Why we must nurture children's hearts as well as minds: 7 ways to teach kids strong, ethical behavior and character in a decade of moral erosion

Nancy Jones's insight:

Our heart needs education too

Jenn Alevy's comment, January 13, 12:44 AM
The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.

This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.
