Selfishness: Selfishness is often regarded as a typical childhood trait, either because egocentrism is developmentally normal or because children are understood as inherently sinful and in need of moral correction. Discuss the depiction of selfishness in children and/or adults in the texts you have chosen; you may wish to discuss the reasons for selfish behavior, the social rules that determine when/if its acceptable to be selfish, and/or the effects of selfishness on a childs development and relationships.

Thesis may focus on an idea common to the texts chosen (a similarity thesis). Alternatively, you may wish to focus on a point of conflict or disagreement (this may require you to create a 2:1 opposition, with two texts sharing a common ideology and the third expressing an opposed view).
