We tend to teach attitude to children unconsciously by coincidence but to be responsible adults we need to teach it consciously and deliberately.
Teach Attitude to Prevent
- many children hate school
- children are isolated in age segregated groups, unlike the rest of society
- many children show the clinical symptoms of stress as early as third grade, and
- most classrooms are essentially dictatorships in a supposedly democratic society.
What specifications for this component of a child's life should guide the work of teachers?
