What should we be teaching children?

I think that at a young age, children should be taught that you can be friends with somebody even if that person has a different opinion than you. Otherwise we get "stop liking what I don't like" man-babies.

I also think that in school, children should be taught things that they'll have to deal with in "the real life", such as finding a job, making a CV, paying bills, etc.

Now I ask the Pit. What do you think?

Humans are incapable of seeing past racial, political, and religious differences. We need to accept it and focus on keeping the number of killings to a minimum instead of trying to convince ourselves that it doesn't exist.

Accountability.

Too many people aren't willing to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions and prefer to shift the blame to something else.

All children should be taught how to use a gun and proper gun safety. They should also learn how to make balloon animals.

Teach them critical thinking, how to consider all sides of an issue, how to recognize logical fallacies, how to overcome their own biases, etc.

Fast forward a generation, no Republicans. :3

Isn't this what goes on now? Indoctrination and the decay of creativity...

Unless they don't live in America or some weird place where it's normal to walk around with a gun.

Doing taxes.

My Accounting teacher went into this slightly in accounting, but nowhere near enough detail. And now I have to figure out my taxes this year.

I think that, in school, children should be taught how to legislate the future world so that they can make what they want instead of jumping through the hoops of today. "The real life" is whatever the people in charge make it; you can teach children to be good followers of the powers that be or teach them how to take charge themselves.

Teach them how to survive in the wild with nothing but a multi-tool and 60 pounds of camera gear for 7 days.



All while sporting a slight Canadian accent.

Go hang out with preschoolers--they haven't been taught to understand these things and they don't even take them into consideration in how they interact with other children. Group-mentality and ostracizing "the other" are natural human tendencies, but they don't naturally go along the lines you've listed. We have to teach the kids what those lines are in the first place.

Yes, guns are a great method of natural population control.
