Psychologically sound parents aside, cases of children receiving psychologically dysfunctional rearing are far too common.
The most crucial aspect of parents’ rearing their offspring involves that of their children’s psychological well-being and functionality as well as that of the physical, both at home and especially while desiring to harmoniously blend into society.
Thus, society could do much more for our children of the future by, for one thing, adding to senior-secondary education curriculum the very basics of psychologically-sound child rearing.
If society wants functional youth — and, therefore, eventually mentally-functional teens who become socially-crucial taxpaying adults – it only makes sense to establish and implement high-school curriculum that includes courses, or even one course, on (at least) basic child psychology and rearing that would commence in Grade(s) 11 and/or 12. One of the primary cases in point in such a course would be, Yelling or blatantly screaming at your kids is totally antithetical to rearing functional children.
Such pre-emptive education would at least somewhat prepare our young people regarding the offspring they may bear one day, especially in regards to mostly common-sense yet crucial lessons such as never to lose their composure when it comes to negative, especially destructive outburst emotions when dealing with such fragile, malleable minds.
When considering the fact that children are vulnerable to developing dysfunctional thought processes and characteristics in their later years because of psychologically flawed rearing during their first six years of life, should we, and especially our willfully silent news-media, be allowed the irresponsibility of remaining silent on the above-mentioned issue and as-of-yet untried pre-emptive treatment.
