I saw this question on Facebook “What is something that should be taught to children?” and someone answered:

“How to vote.”


That there is someone out there that thinks this is a sensible answer is worrying to me.



What the actual fuck???

It's a brilliant question though. cheers

I would say, especially in todays world when people are judged on how they look, who they know, what they have etc... Acceptance, to accept other people for what they are.

I really think acceptance of others, is a good lesson to learn when you are young.

I'm with Horatio on this one. I think I'll add learn how to converse quietly in public no need to let half the nation hear what you are saying.
Voting that can come later.
Acceptance yes - but to what extent.

I'm still confused by two forks, but at least I don't cut up all of my food then proceed to eat it. Wink

I only have one rule when we are eating with family, no phones at the table.

I have several. Don't eat with your mouth open. Don't talk with your mouth full. Don't lean your elbows on the table. Hold your knife and fork properly. Don't eat with your fingers unless it's finger food.

I'm not sure about that. If I spoke the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, there would be a lot of outrage and offended people around.

Went to a carvery today, my head was ringing by the time I came out. People are so loud these days. Everyone seems to be vying to have the loudest conversation and don't start me on the cackling laughter.

Accountability.

Too many people think someone else is responsible for their problems and failures.

Sorry Sunshine, you need to own your decisions, behavior and results.
