#7: The Top Ten Rules That Children Learn in School That May Handicap Their Future: #7

22 Nov

If you’re a parent or adult or teacher or perhaps all three. then you have probably already realized what it is that will wear kids out, and their chance for a bright and happy future,  faster than just simply growing older, just like it has most probably worn you out. The rules! And the fact that in adulthood where kids are going and where you’ve been, there are no rules.

The 7th rule that children learn in school that may handicap their future…

7.  Don’t cheat. Cheating in the adult world goes hand in hand with lying and almost everyone who has everything has cheated in some way to get it. (or had someone do it for them) Cheating in the adult world is not half as bad as getting caught at cheating is. Getting caught is the sin that makes an adult a loser… not the cheating.

Rule #8?…To be continued…

    I can see why you are promulgating these rules, and if this is dark humor, forgive me, but wow, this is beginning to seem really dark. Why bother having children in your life if you have to encourage them to be snakes?

      I would never encourage children to be snakes…but I always encourage them to be aware that snakes are everywhere and to be careful because ultimately in the adult world you are responsible for yourself even if you fall prey to a snake (unless you can afford very expensive lawyers). Am I wrong?

        Maybe then the solution is to train them to identify that there are different sets of rules, and that you get to choose who you will be, and how you will move through the universe base on the rule set you select. You also need to be able to identify people who operate under different rules (as well as truly toxic people.) When you come up against an impasse of rules, there are choices–take advantage, be taken advantage of, avoidance and direct (maybe even confrontational) engagement. It’s very much like recognizing that there are differences of language and culture. You don’t have to be a yellow-bellied sapsucker to recognize one.
