There is no single definition of honesty. It is an ethical value, fundamental for social interaction. Teaching the child what it is takes time and depends on the attitudes of the parents themselves, examples and conversations. According to the study ‘Moms’ Hopes & Wishes’ (in the original, ‘Moms’ Hopes & Wishes’) released by Fisher-Price, a global early childhood development company and subsidiary of Mattel, honesty is the main personality characteristic that Brazilian mothers want their children to achieve in life. It was even above other important ones, such as success, leadership and intelligence.
During the survey, which was carried out over four weeks between February and March 2015, more than 3,500 mothers aged between 21 and 40 were interviewed. Fifty percent of the participants were first-time pregnant women. The other half consisted of first-time mothers of one child, aged between 0 and 18 months. Local surveys were conducted online or in person in seven countries, including: Brazil, Mexico, Russia, United Kingdom and United States.
When asked about the opportunities their children will have compared to the opportunities they themselves had, mothers from five of the seven countries feel that their children will have a better life, including in Brazil. What makes you feel most optimistic about raising children? Access to education was the number one answer.
All the data were presented during a forum that brought together international experts in early childhood development, including singer Shakira, who is the mother of Milan, 3 years old, and Sasha, 6 months old.
