The Washington Kids Post featured an interesting study about people learning to help others. It was in the article entitled A Little Help. This study showed that toddlers as young as 18 months are altruistic, being helpful just to be nice. The study concluded with the statement that the desire to help is a uniquely human trait. Examples given were donations to charity, recycling for the environment, and giving up a prime subway seat to an older person. The point was made that none of these things give people much benefit beyond feeling good about helping others.
So, whom have you helped today?
So share a time you helped someone either today or at some other time. How did it make you feel? How about the person you helped? Let’s be altruistic!
