Education or Upbringing what is more essential in today's society?
We experience many intolerant and rude behaviors in society these days, so what do we need most under such situations the education or good upbringing?
We need to educate our children to be the decent human beings. We must cultivate emotional intelligence, it's as important as proper education. We must teach them empathy and understanding - both are missing in this world.
What is missing today is a good upbringing. The left took the disciplining of the children away from the parents and that allowed the children to have the upper hand. Also the continued decline of marriages through divorce and parents being forced to both work left the children alone and without a parent or parents to bring them up. To make it worse, it puts even more strain on a single parent to feed their family and pay their bill. over 40 million people are on food stamps. Families battling poverty that is impending or actual have little time for parenting.
In addition, the government punishes parents that discipline their children. When parents can't discipline their children respect is gone.
Also, with divorce, neither parent is even trying or able to discipline or set a good example for their children.
A large part of this fail to bring up children is due to the meddling of the government into the lives of the citizens.
Don't forget the effect of families being on welfare most of the life of the children when they are growing up. Is that an image booster for the kids?
Education today doesn't even give kids a solid foundation in academics, and when they are at school they are learning how to survive on the streets, as well as in school.
Educating students has not been a success in academics, and academics is being infused by the liberal through liberal teachers. Like Hllywood, teachers are mostly liberal.
That is not the job of schools or teachers, as their should be a political center in schools and teachers and not political bias.
Part of a good upbringing would be to show kids how to make independent decision using good judgement. Indoctrinating kids into to religion and politics of the parents takes that independence out and replaces it with just blindly following someone else and their ideology. While they should be exposed to that they should be taught as they get older to make their own decisions.
Answer, Up bringing is more important than academics.
It's a mish mash of both with a lean towards the upbringing, being the main premise.(INMHO) Children learn by imitating the people around them. Picking up on both the conscious and unconscious beliefs and views of the surrounding adults.Children are born innocent loving and trusting.
