Hello BITOGers,

What would you see as valuable skills to teach Today's children?

If you can be as specific as group by age and if sometimes could apply to both boys and girls,
It would be appreciated.

My turn:
-reading
-multiple languages
-mental math
-dressing for weather
-be aware of your surroundings
-cooking basics
-fire/flame safety
-safe use of simple tools
-don't panic
-self defense

What do you do when pretty much all the other kids around them are learning a different thing?
example:
-cut the line
-the loudest mouth wins
-the one that pushes the most wins
-etc etc

don't you consider you are giving the kids a handicap since you are teaching them to follow the rules to the letter, when others don't?

I am teaching a 12 yr old how to drive a standard transmission. She may never need those skills. Then again she may want an older car or Jeep when she is driving age.

Do your homework first

Learn how to deal with difficult people

Learn to never give up (Persistence pays)

Don't cross the street glued to your cell phone

Learn the art of patience

Realize that the world owes you nothing
