Teaching "Virtue" to Kids

I got the best laugh of the week listening to this NPR program this morning, called “Class Teaches Virtues to Children of Many Faiths.”

Essentially this Jewish lady is teaching a classroom of children from 14 months to 6 years old to respect other religions and to exhibit virtues — all good, right? At one point in the story, she asks her at-home class, “Did anyone exhibit contentment this week?” To which a little boy replies, “Not me!” Which was hilarious enough.

But the best part isn’t in the article. It’s when the NPR reporter asks another little boy what his favorite virtue is.

He confidently replies, “My favorite virtue is T.V.”
