Raising good kids can save the world. Good kids can help make the world a kinder, safer place. Kids who are raised to be good--above and beyond any other characteristic--mature into adults who display honor and integrity in their daily lives. Children who value goodness don't cheat on a test to get into the college of their choice. They don't steal candy from the grocery store or grow into adults who steal office supplies from the workplace. They treat others with respect and kindness, and they don't hurt innocent people through violence, manipulation, or cruelty. If every parent focused first and foremost on goodness, society could minimize many of today's biggest problems: violence, cruelty, dishonesty, thievery, narcissism, exploitation, mistrust, substance abuse, arrogance, and more.
