Every day, with each new experience, children learn important life that help develop values ​​lessons. As parents, these ethics and values ​​in the back of our minds, often subconsciously, when we do things with our children like bake a cake together, and make a card for a relative, and to help them build a den with their friends or just let them play in the garden. Dig wants to explore the understanding of mothers' instinctive deeper values, so we talked with 240 mothers and grandmothers 20, and 5 great grandmothers in 10 locations throughout the world to do exactly that. We called "Mamma Mia," and some of our findings, the project is the most exciting common interest below. Values ​​are an integral part of every person and help to provide us with personal, social and cultural value part; in essence, they form our identity and place in society. They do not guide us all, pointing to what is important, good or useful, but it can also be a source of inspire and motivate us. Regardless of the social and cultural differences and mothers see the world the responsibility of instilling values ​​and the role of personal information. Whether in Turkey, or Brazil, Indonesia, and mothers everywhere share a certain set of values ​​as a bench to raise their children:

Mother values-driven (non-negotiable) - those we feel a duty to instill such as honesty, respect for others, sharing and giving and self-reliance, responsibility and respect for cultural traditions and the elders.

Child and maternal values ​​driven (encouraged) - that we feel we can be actively encouraged, but which are driven by personal, such as design and trust; or those that are rewarded and armed, like love and gratitude towards the family and sociability and relationships.

Child values-driven (high values) - those are our child will develop normally and have a negative, but we can facilitate, such as creativity and discovery, curiosity and imagination. When our children recognize and understand the values ​​we have tried to instill, it is greatly rewarding, providing us with pride and happiness. Child-driven values ​​such as creativity, imagination, curiosity and discovery is very important for the development of children, but also mothers, and we put them less direct importance. Most of these values ​​instilled naturally and can be stimulated or facilitated through play and experiences in the outdoors, such as climbing trees, rolling down hills or jumping in pools. While we may be eager to leave the kids have free reign to discover through curiosity, in case they hurt (or home dirty), and provides the play with kids basic personal experiences that form the building. Along with other values, it can also increase our own happiness and pride - How did you feel rewarded last time your child painted a picture of you? Not only does it show that they understand the love and gratitude and the importance of sharing and giving, but they show a natural tendency creative and imaginative.
