We Are What We See: The Family Conditions for Modeling Values for Children.
Available empirical evidence indicates that the deterioration of stable marriages and families has been a principal generator of moral decline. Children learn moral values mainly within their families, and mainly by relying on their parents as role models. Family conditions for modeling values, together with recent family trends that have impacted the process, have led to declining family time. Two fundamental social changes are necessary to remedy the situation: revitalizing the institution of marriage, and reorganizing work lives. (Author/EV)
