Practice Makes Perfect


When kids freely choose to share a favorite possession, they’re more likely to share in the future, a new study finds.

“You might imagine that making difficult, costly choices is taxing for young children or even that once children share, they don’t feel the need to do so again, but this wasn’t the case: once children made a difficult decision to give up something for someone else, they were more generous, not less, later on.”

I wonder if this would work for adults too? Like politicians and bankers.
