Roots of Altruism

Are children born with an inclination to be altruistic, or do they need to be taught?  In his research lab at Harvard University Dr. Warneken observes toddlers, and his findings challenge a widely held belief that young children are driven mainly by selfishness. 

He will share compelling video footage that demonstrates that even very young children have a natural tendency to help other people solve their problems, even when they receive no benefit at all.
