    Yes, such behavior creates a healthier, safer, more livelier environment and/or living circumstances.
    Kids with morals are less likely to kill for money or lifeless reasons.

    Yes it will. Anything you can do to help a child acquire better decision making will help them and all of us in the long run. However, I would also consider defensive skills as many people lack all those you mentioned.

    I believe it is not only something that will help society in the long run but a Wise and moral duty of sorts for a parent to integrate such concepts as Psychology, Philosophy amongst others and especially Moral behaviours and ethics into the conversations and activities they share with their children! I feel it is important for a child’s psychological health, development and general well being to have a good understanding of their own behaviours/self as well as an understanding of their fellow human beings and society as a whole. I often integrate interesting concepts into conversations I have with all of my children, even my five year old I feel has a good level of emotional intelligence for her age group! In the long term, the grand scheme of things… not every one in society perceives things in the same way, as we live within a richly diverse society with different cultures and attitudes. If everyone had at least the desire, will and knowledge of such concepts and attitudes at least at the basic level, then I believe society would be a better place on the whole!.

    People commonly educate their children, with their horse sense, as they build their houses, according to some plan they think beautiful, without considering whether it is suited to the purposes for which they are designed. Parents do try to teach moral and religious values but due to their own ignorance they cannot do it effectively. Most parents do not know elements of ethics, philosophy and psychology.

    Things are terrible in third world countries, where ignorance and poverty are not able to improve literacy rate significantly.

    Whose morals and ethics? What I consider wrong, another sees as just fine. What use to be unacceptable is now acceptable.

    When I give this some thought, I think parents do teach kids ethics, morals and more… just not all the same ones. The standards and values aren’t the same for everyone and we don’t all agree on what is and isn’t acceptable.
