Learning to play fair: Is it the same for kids around the world?
Life isn’t fair.
That truth is something that children seem to understand almost intuitively at a young age. However, the path through which they develop a sense of what’s fair and what isn’t — and how they act on injustices — is something that has been a puzzle for social scientists.
Fairness is a willingness to sacrifice for the sake of equality. It is an ideal that supports cooperation, sharing and sacrifice. But it also can lead to competition and greed.
