subjects of importance?

who else feels that children between the ages of 11 to 16 should be educated about things like respect,manners,selflessness,love,consideration for others,and Perception of attitudes as an educational priority


I am aware that intelligent,responsible parents do these things,but sadly such parents are thin on the ground,so is it just another oh well,never mind situation,we will all suffer if rude unruly kids are not educated about these values.

    Yes, but it is the role of the parents to teach this- or, shall I say, it should be. As both a parent and a teacher I'd never expect the role of a teacher to include manners and consideration- my daughter is 3 and half, already always says please and thank you and I'm teaching her all the things you mention in your question. I think we live in a sad world where some parents fail to teach their children even these basic things, and seem to think education begins and ends inside the classroom. Education and learning is a whole-life experience that starts at birth and it is not (well, should not) be the role of the school, especially a secondary school, to teach manners to children- a skill which should have been acquired some 7-13 years earlier!

    I agree with you, and I am 16 years old. Too many people ages 11-16 and even a little older think the only way to live is to be the "popular" one and do things that they don't want to just to "fit in".

    I wish I was offered classes / workshops for these types of topics, I would certainly go and I would hope others would to so everyone can understand respect and learn to love ourselfs and believe in ourselfs.

    I totally agree, the thing is, we used to learn stuff like this in Sunday school and from our parents. now church is not an important part of a lot of lifes. and parents are too busy working and just go what ever feels right for you etc
