For most kids, school is the main source of education and information. As important as math and science are, there’s more to life than them. Schools should also teach kids about life, surviving, character building, have motivation, and even be motivational. Schools should basically teach kids how to be human. My optimism makes me believe in the next generation; I believe they could change our society. If schools taught kids these skills, they’ll be unstoppable.
Here are some of the subjects I wish kids could learn in schools:
1-Personal Development Subject:
-Producing a personal CV or resume
-Leadership and management
-Communication and relationship subject won’t harm
Imagine if kids could meditate for a few minutes every morning before the school day? Having a peaceful morning rather than a rushed and stressful morning would definitely make a difference.
4-Setting lifetime goals:
Career – What do you want to be and how to achieve it?
Financial – Not actual finance classes, but personal financing. How to manage your own money.
Education –School and college is never enough. What do you want to learn for curiosity? What do you need to learn that could help your future in your career? And how do you learn?
Family – Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent?
Attitude – Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.
Change something – Do you want to make the world a better place? Learn how you can be the change.
Why aren’t schools teaching our children how to take care of their bodies?
7-People and expectations:
Why you shouldn’t expect anything from anyone
-Dealing with people
-Emotional and interpersonal skills
-Character analysis 101
-How to introduce an idea.
If this happens, it would improve our nation’s health, both physically and mentally, and our economy would expand as more people would have and create innovative and passionate careers for themselves. With happier, healthier and more prosperous citizens, we’d also very likely reduce violence and crime.
