Children’s Conscience During Toddler and Preschool Years, …

New Science of Virtues is a valuable site with articles and research in relation to morality and virtues.


In this recent article it claims:

Children’s Conscience During Toddler and Preschool Years, Moral Self, and a Competent, Adaptive Developmental Trajectory is a fascinating subject for concerned parents and educators. The effective implementation of virtues in children is especially of interest to integrated education.

Children who are taught to view the world of humanity as one organic entity are happier and healthier

The interesting question that integrated education raises is virtues such as kindness, patience, compassion, honesty, fidelity, trustworthiness, integrity, love, punctuality, commitment, forbearance, resilience, perseverance, contentment, detachment from worldly possessions, etc. are eternal and universal. What makes virtues subject to question is the values that we use to express virtue.


We live in a global community but many of our values are still based on a familial, tribal, or national identity. We only consider people deserving of our virtues if they belong to our family, our tribe, our nation, or our religion. Children must be taught the importance o transcending the lesser loyalties of yesteryears and see themselves in relation to the rest of humanity as leaves of one branch, waves of one sea, cells of the same body, and fruits of one tree. Then and only then, the expression of their virtues will be good and not divisive. Whatever is universally beneficial then we can be sure it is good.


Hope you enjoy the exploration of this important subject.
