There's nothing "cool" about failing. Epic or otherwise.

Manners - this is an obvious one (internet trolls fit in here well).
Do unto others... - even taken as non-religious common sense, it doesn't get taught much.
Stealing is bad - from most of (the caught) thieves in our area being college age or younger this seems to fit.
Most importantly - you have the right to free speech but you don't have the right to be an asshat without getting your ass kicked.

I feel that kids need to be taught how to behave in public, rather than simply being allowed to get away with running around and shouting profanities for everyone to hear. I was in a library and two kids who were still in primary school were running around with one shouting profanities at the other. I found it to be rather rude and disrespectful. To make matters worse, when a staff member tried to intervene, she was simply ignored and it took her standing between them before they stopped.

★ Respect your elders - just because they don't let you have your way doesn't mean it's the end of your world. They know what's outside and are trying to keep you safe from it.

★ If you want to be treated right, then treat others right.

★ There is a lot more to experience in the world than just looking at our cellphones and daydreaming about it.
I learned that after I had to restrict myself from my phone after my grades began to go down. And when I see other people, I begin to think that the reason why we never speak up much is because we choose not to. We choose to shut ourselves in, turning down any challenges that could greatly improve our character or behavior.

★ Don't bully others if they have done nothing to you and if they have interests that are different from yours.

★ Beware those who use you only for personal benefit.

★ Learn to budget wisely and have patience for the future.

Kids these days lack the value of hardwork. School should start being a competition like it's supposed to be and not a big playground. At least in highschool. Some kids in highschool are just.... Like they need to get in gear or something, wow are they useless. Even in college. In my classes there is this one kid who sits there messing with his phone, failing quizzes, and turning in no homework. Obviously this is a product of not learning the value of hard work as a kid. He thinks in his head that everybody will support him, no dude, this is college and it's a competition, get with the program or get out and work in a factory. The sad part is that he will pass the class, he will get a job, and he will continue to be a useless member of society supported by the others around him. That's the world we live in and it's retarded.

Wow I'm surprised no one seems to have noticed this.

The thing each generation increasingly lacks in the First World is personal accountability.

Most First World problems you can think of today are directly linked to a lack of proper teaching in being responsible. Today, people blame their mental illnesses, their race, their gender, their income, their circumstance, their country, their neighbors, their friends, their enemies, their diet, their time, their reputation, their grief, their illness, their losses, their lovers, their electronics, their mothers, their fathers etc etc etc. The list goes on and on and on.

People today are much more likely to only point fingers at anything but themselves.

So stop teaching your bloody kids that their problems are okay because it's not all their fault.



Seriously.

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.


Oh wow.

Cursive isn't useful in our society. We should have mandatory programming classes though in schools.
