The article discusses the merits of giving to others and suggests being generous makes us happier people and brings benefit to the one donating. Children can benefit from their own generosity. According to the author, it leads to them having better lives in general. Teaching children to be philanthropic can be accomplished by parents and elders being charitable themselves. Mirror neuron theory is described as helping us understand and internalize the emotional state of another. This is how children learn through watching others being charitable.
