How to Raise Helpful Kids

Through observing a variety of cultures around the world for the past two decades, scientists have identified a special and surprising trend: Most parents simply do not struggle to raise thoughtful, helpful children. In most cultures, children ages 2 to 18 appear to simply wake up ready to help, and take initiative on family tasks like carrying groceries, sharing food with siblings, or doing dishes.
