    What knowledge and understanding is required to be a contributing adult and member of society?

    What concepts have helped you become a competent adult?  What concepts do you wish you had a better of, in order to be a contributing and informed member of society?  What subjects are important for adolescents to learn in order to understand the world around them and fulfill their responsibilities when they reach adulthood?

    Having a common sense approach to all situations is advantageous. This together with a sense of fairness, a thirst for useful and reliable information and learning from experience and mistakes will help anyone develop into a responsible and informed member of society The young today have far more choices and opportunities than any previous generation and with the rise of the internet it can be easier for them to realise their aspirations and become successful in whatever field they choose. Being highly specialised in one particular field can often leave young people at a disadvantage so it is advisable to have a sound 'cross the board' knowledge in a wide range of subjects as well as the main subject that they hope to pursue as a career. It is wise to remember that learning does not always equate with understanding so in order to have an in depth insight into a subject it is is necessary to apply.the things learned in theory to a practical setting.

    I feel just being able to keep a job and pay your own way and taxes. Staying out of trouble and off of assistance programs.
    Getting married and having a family you care fore takes it a step farther.

    Well, let's see.. I haven't seen one like this before. I'm usually in the Heart, but it makes me think.

    We contribute spiritually, like Monks, the devout, through prayer, meditation and inspiration and service to uplift others. We contribute as philanthropists and humanitarians with aid and food programmes around the world.

    We contribute to science and technology such as in medicine, electronics, space exploration; we contribute through nature and agriculture, such as farming, planting, growing food ...resevoirs for water, etc
    We contribute to the marine industries such as fishing, wildlife and nature; we contribute in the family, growing children and instilling morals and etiquette.

    We contribute through education through schools, colleges, universities; We contribute through religion via churches, stupors, mosques, Gurdhwaras ....to instill moral values, faith and hope in Something Higher. To help us grow and progress.

    We contribute through architecture, planning, roads and environmental improvements. It goes on ...

    We need cleaners, scavengers, health systems, political systems
    One needs education, experience and knowledge, and a body of common sense attributable to the fact that we are humans with developed minds. Lots more.
