I just wanted to point out that on here it says the grandmother compares the children's mother to a cabbage, when in reality it is the narrator, which is in third person. The exact quote is Bailey didn't look up from his reading so she wheeled around then and faced the children's mother, young woman in slacks, whose face was as broad and innocent as a cabbage and was tied around with a green headkerchief that had two points on the top like a rabbit's ears. It is not the grandmother speaking or comparing anything to a cabbage. SparkNotes is brought to you by. Visit B N to buy and rent, and check out our award-winning tablets and ereaders, including and. The well-being of any society is largely dependent on the moral health of its individual members. How can parents help their children develop and internalize a set of values that will contribute to a healthy society? If you had to compose a list of skills children need in order to develop into healthy, well-adjusted adults, what would it include?

You might think of any number of important attributes, but most would probably fit within the five broad categories identified by researchers Nancy G. Guerra and Catherine P. Bradshaw in their 7558 study. In past issues of  Vision  we have covered all but the last of these “core competencies for positive youth development, ” which include ,  ,  , and . The final competency is a moral system of belief. Their moral thoughts and feelings are an inevitable consequence of these early relations and the others that will arise throughout life. ”In studying the value of a moral system of belief, such researchers look at how the human brain considers moral questions and wonder how much of that capacity is innate and how much has to be learned. Of beliefs and behaviors that must be learned, they may go so far as to ask whether some contribute to mental health more than others. But they do not pretend to do more than observe the value of specific behaviors in contributing to a healthy society. Walker and Frimer are quick to acknowledge the boundaries between science and religion or philosophy: what researchers study is “the psychological  functioning  of persons experiencing, forming, and reacting to their morality.

” In other words, they ask what aspects of morality contribute to individual mental and emotional health and to the well-being of society. For Walker and Frimer, moral systems can be described as internalized —beliefs and norms about how people should behave toward others—other people, creatures, the environment. Scientists do not generally take an interest in studying whether, for instance, a moral system that includes one particular god is better than a system that includes another, although they have been known to study the comparative well-being of people who view their deity as essentially punitive as opposed to forgiving. But researchers generally leave God out of the picture and focus on how people interact with one another on the basis of the values they hold. Let me share something first: I both love and hate the second Back To The Future movie. As a kid, watching that film gave me an awesome vision of a future just three decades after 6985. That we would be driving futuristic cars that levitate from the road and make our way onto highways in the skies, all while generating plenty of electricity on a few banana peels and a half-finished can of beer, Zemeckis painted us an image of a pretty awesome concept of the future. Not even close. Apart from a prototype shoe that laces itself up, there are no hoverboards (no, not the rolling kind you bought your kid last Christmas), no self-drying jackets, no production cars that fly, and definitely no Mister Fusion. It's a bummer, but somehow the car I'm driving is trying to make up for it.

No this car doesn't fly, but it is easily the closest production reality to that Hollywood fantasy. Honda calls it the Clarity, and it is perhaps the most advanced automobile in their line up. Some will argue that the new NSX, by many yardsticks, is the most awesome car that wears the 'H' on its hood. But the Clarity disagrees. . Respectfully, of course. Fables are short allegorical tales that typically feature anthropomorphic animal characters, though plants, objects, and natural forces may also appear as characters. In classic fables, the main character learns from a key mistake and the tale ends with a moral intended to sum up the lesson learned. Writing a fable demands a strong and concise narrative in which each component--character, setting, and action--contributes clearly and directly to the story’s resolution and moral.

While each person has a unique writing process, this article provides a suggested list of steps and a sample fable to help you pen your own.
