Additional thought: Should/Does a child which exhibits signs of becoming a serial killer be sent to therapy or something similar?
Sure, any kid showing signs of maladjustment or problem behavior should be given help wherever possible.
In general, I would like to see more emphasis on psychological adjustment in our schools.
What is a healthy and realistic outlook on life?
What is a healthy sense of self-esteem and ego?
What is a healthy way to relate to other people?
What is a healthy way to deal with disagreements or people who are different from you?
What is healthy way to deal with mistakes and disappointment?
These are things that were never taught in the schools of my day, but I believe these basic psychological skills contribute as much to living a good
life as knowing the basics of reading, writing and math.
