    KYP - A must have subject in schools

    Know Your Parents

    I think this must be made a mandatory subject in schools. I cannot believe people haven't thought about this seriously. We inherit our genes and a substantial portion of our behavioural aspects from our parents. So if we are able to look into their lives, their characters etc it will enhance our own understanding of ourselves.

    They say Knowing Yourself is Knowing the World itself.

    Thoughts?

    I think every effort must be taken for the child to be in touch with both his parents.

    Unless one parent (or both) has been deemed not suitable for society by a court. Just because parents divorce kid should not lose touch of the ones who made him/her.

    Why?

    If the parent has chosen to walk away what can you do.

    Nice sentiment but totally impractical and would never work.

    That's lovely but the world doesn't work like that. There are a lot of people raising children as their own despite biology saying otherwise. How would your studies fit in with this?

    That's more like a rare exception is it not? Now I am talking purely from my perspective of the society I live in. Divorces themselves are pretty rare let alone parents walking out on the baby. :|

    Anyways thank you for the good words.

    Again, it's just a thought experiment on my part (I am spending some time with my parents, and chanced to really observe how in some ways the way they think is closely aligned to the way I think)

    I believe it can be made part of the curricula and wherever applicable inducted into the kid's assignments and stuff. Also teaching kids the value of family, parents etc will turn them into responsible mature adults which hopefully can bring down divorce rates, atleast unfortunate stuff like parents walking out of the family etc.

    Blimey is that %? 12% seems to be pretty high, but then again, if I am able to cover 88% of children (assuming all things are evenly distributed), I'd still be happy.

    I come from relatively conservative society that is India. Here divorces are pretty rare so I must admit I am swayed by this bias.

    You're missing the point. What about adopted kids? Kids who've been raised by a bloke who got with their mum when they were a baby? Etc? It's not just a case of divorce rates.

    Call me crazy, but why couldn't we just talk to our parents?

    I was a bit confused as to whether you meant this to be for kids who have a single parent and want to get to know the other, or just for people who are that ****ing socially inept they need someone else to teach them about the family they live with every single day of the year.

    Just out of interest, who is going to do the research to teach the 30 kids in the class about each of their parents?
