The spotlight effect. Other people don't care about how you slip up like you do.

They don't seem to care and neither did I as a kid.

How to fail in life, the no left behind crap needs to go. Failing at things teaches you to be stronger, sadly kids think they should be handed everything to them on a silver platter.

That there's a difference between saying something to someone's face where they can see you, and sending an anonymous text (for a prime example look at the 13 year old in the "what is the most dickish thing..." thread, who sent anonymous rape threats to an 11 year old girl "as a joke").
Also that actions have consequences, I know that teenagers have problems with perspective but it seems to have gotten worse. I disagree about respecting elders however- respect should be earned not just dished out due to age. Generations of kids taught to respect everyone older than them is how we got into "historic sexual allegations against children" territory, abused kids were so in fear of adults they couldn't bring themselves to say anything.

Cursive.

They're taking it out of curriculum. Sad really.

I guess there's really nothing different between my generation and the current one tbh. There might be something with learning how to rewind VHS tapes, but that's just patience.

Oh and computers are super fast now, so no one ever has to deal with like... "loading" or also slow internet "dialup". So basically, if something takes longer than 1 minute to load, it's most likely broken. I remember when it was normal to wait 5 -10 mins to load a program or to open a website. Everything the new generation does is instantaneous now. So I guess patience might be something they'd have to learn.

RIP cursive though. But who needs to write anyway when you can type.

Critical Thinking.

It's not tested, so why wastes time teaching kids how to think for themselves.

It's ok to throw food on the ground instead of in the trash.
