And even with my quibbles, the book provides ample food for thought—most notably, the importance of self-reflection and role-modeling in encouraging future moral exemplars.

MORAL, VALUES AND MORAL VALUES A. Some Definition of Moral Values. “But our study shows that how morality develops is a little more sophisticated, more nuanced than we thought. Even at this very early age, we see these individual differences.” Perhaps surprisingly, parental emotional empathy—the ability to share the emotions of another person—did not seem to influence sharing behavior in their toddlers.
