Harvard, parenting and raising caring, ethical children
You may have come across the links below as they have been recently shared on social media. I am always looking out for parenting and education tips, and when I saw one of the articles, listing five things parents should do to raise “good” kids and quoting a prestigious institution such as Harvard University, I wanted to know more.
So, going a little deeper I found this beautiful project from Harvard University called Making Caring Common (MCC). Their mission is to “help educators, parents, and communities raise children who are caring, responsible to their communities, and committed to justice”. How? “MCC uses research and the expertise and insights of both practitioners and parents to develop effective strategies for promoting in children kindness and a commitment to the greater good, to influence the national conversation about raising and educating caring, ethical children”. If you are interested in learning more and reading their reports and resources, the project’s webpage is https://mcc.gse.harvard.edu/. From that page, there is a tab exclusive for parenting resources, which you can access here.
The articles that have inspired the search and give a very good overview of the recommendations for parents are listed below:
