This is a very thought provoking article that has shaken me out of my comfort zones. How children are being raised today may have far-reaching consequences. Read the excerpts: “…many modern children—far from growing up surrounded by doting kin—don’t even see much of their busy, working parents. Kids receive much of their care from non-kin, whether babysitters or preschool teachers. Then there are all the children who grow up with only one or no parent or abusive parents. As a result, many kids suffer from "disorganized attachment,” which means they have a hard time understanding and trusting others.
If children receive poor care, their innate capacity for caring may not be fully expressed; they may become uncaring parents, colleagues, citizens. Even more alarmingly, the genes underpinning our prosocial impulses may dwindle because they are no longer favored by natural selection".
