Parent Education

Parents say they want kids to be caring, but pay more attention to achievement.  Ironically, kids raised to be kind are more successful in school and work (and happier too).  We shouldn’t just ask kids what they accomplished. We should also ask who they helped-and who helped them. -Adam Grant
