Definition of greediness:
- gluttony (part of speech: noun)
- selfishness (part of speech: noun)
A reason for this is that the strongest instincts in children are those relating to self- preservation and the gratification of personal desires, hence selfishness, greediness, anger, and the fighting instinct are natural to the child, while generosity, good manners, respect for the rights of others, and sympathy require, in order to be properly developed, persistent effort and education.- "Parent and Child Vol. III., Child Study and Training", Mosiah Hall.
