Hey guys just registered to ATS after lurking for AGES.
Finally found a thread that angered me enough to register just to post on.
No offense to you but....
Please go back to college and repeat psychology 101, sociology 101 and biology 101.
and while your at it.. take a child psychology class and developmental psychology class.
teaching your kids is not the way to fixing our worlds problems -_-
we are HUMAN BEINGS we can not simply fix our flaws from simple teachings. (ie religion)
you have to UNDERSTAND your kids and act upon their behavior to GUIDE them in the right direction. and even if successful there is the HUMAN element
involved.. you never know what we are capable of xD
A perfectly raised child may have a flaw that was never addressed and then violence occurs.
A Seemingly-perfectly raised child may have always been jealous of his older brother for something TRIVIAL that happened at age 0-3 creating a complex
for this child later on in life with an outcome in violence.
sorry sir, your ideals sound nice and happy, but humans can not just be "taught" out of their flaws unless we know EVERYTHING about humans... and even
then it would take hundreds of generations and by that time i'm sure we will have all blown up by then.
also please stop blaming violent video games, etc... for the violence in our world. It's much more logical that at an early age the child witnessed
the mother and father in an intimate moment, and the child believed the father to be hurting the mother, leaving a traumatic imprint of violence in
the child's eyes, or something random like that.
Violent video games are a perfect outlet for kids to let their emotions out and great ways to drill "killing = bad" into our children's brains.
please for the love of god before you have children take these courses you will thank me!
In actuality though i'm all for teaching our children better... the majority of kids nowadays have parents who dont even pick up a parenting manual
let alone take parenting courses. They just wing it not even thinking about their child's future let alone the future of our species...
I believe ALL parents should be required to take these psychology and sociology courses to learn how stuff actually works, to UNDERSTAND their kids
more so they can better act upon the child's basic needs.
