raising kids to be good socialists/capitalists

One benefit of the newborn stage is the opportunity to catch up on my issues of Brain, Child magazine.

I especially enjoyed this essay by Catherine Newman, in which she highlights the inconsistencies in the lessons we teach to our children, and what we practice as adults. We insist upon kids sharing, but how willing are we to share our most valued possessions? This essay provides a lot of fodder to think about.
