From the wiki “Moral character or character is an evaluation of a particular individual’s durable moral qualities. The concept of character can imply a variety of attributes including the existence or lack of virtues such as integrity, courage, fortitude, honesty, and loyalty, or of good behaviors or habits.”

I see shows like “SuperNanny” and i really get shocked. I’m getting old i know but the way kids are usually educated these days is really poor and even alarming. There’s a reason for criminals being criminals and this begins inside the family. I know that character can be genentic but not always. Brothers can have very different characters but then again the education is not the same even inside the same family. Right and wrong are concepts that our parents teach us and i can see no teaching in some families these days. That makes me worried for the future of these kids that will grow up to be people with a bad character and that’s not their falt. It’s the parent’s falt. I believe the lack of limits is one of the worst problems and things like depression are starting to grow in kids with just 8 to 10 years old. They seam to be unable to find satisfaction on life and they are still being taught that they should seek happiness without limits. It should be that simple but humans don’t know how to live only in happiness. I believe limits are good and to learn the difference between right and wrong is basic for a child to grow with character. Some think that by doing this you are taking the liberty of choice of these kids and that’s wrong but i really don’t buy it. We always need some kind of model because we start knowing nothing. So if parents decide not to be models kids will search it somewhere else and it’s not always that this search will end with a good choice.
