Do kids know right from wrong?

It happened recently in Clearfield, Utah, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City. Seven-year-old Eli Squire and his five-year-old brother found some money on the lawn outside a neighbor's house. It wasn't a lot of money. Only a quarter. Nobody would miss it. Should they keep it?

What they did not know was that the yard is protected with a security camera. It caught the boys picking up the quarter and talking about what to do with it. Eli wasn't sure, but Bronx immediately said they should "do the right thing." So they knocked on the neighbor's door and gave it to her. Later, the neighbor emailed the security camera video to their Mom, Becky Squire. She's proud of them. They both say they'll do the same thing if they find money again. And they could have used that lost coin, because mom makes them give each other a quarter whenever they get in a fight.
