A thought on the current state of things

It occurred to me* that maybe we wouldn't have all the problems like oil spills that could have been prevented, corporate scandals of all ilks, and tampered medications for kids if we hadn't been so focused as parents on drumming into our children's heads that they should never "tattle" on other kids.

Thoughts?

*as I was reading NurtureShock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merriman, which is an outstanding and fascinating book that's switched my thinking in a bunch of ways. Want to read it, too, and then we can talk about it on June 11?
