Good Morning America: Advice and Celebrities
Most people hope for their children to be good people, but what do kids feel like parents care the most about? Also, Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth were on Good Morning America to talk about their new show, Mystery Girls.
GMA: Achievement Over Being a Good Person
Parents might not be sending their kids the message of kindness, caring, and empathy. Children are learning more about competitive drive to achieve and overachieve than they are about kindness and compassion.
Harvard child and family psychologist Rick Weissbourd said that there’s a lot of pressure for kids to achieve. Parents have anxiety about their children’s success, and that anxiety carries over to the child.
A high number of children are saying achievement is more important to themselves and their parents than being a good person, and that stat is proven by the habits of high school students. ½ of today’s high school students admit to cheating on tests, and ¾ admit to copying somebody else’s homework.
The best way to make caring a bigger priority for your child is to make it a big priority for yourself.
