A child’s life needs to be GOVERNED and CONTROLLED Watch

    Many youths today are brought up in such a poor fashion. If you were to wander around certain areas, you will see kids hanging out on street corners etc. They all follow the same thing and admire scum celebrities, which in effect, promotes their idea of being a maverick and causing mayhem.

    My idea is to CONTROL what children see and do. I believe it is important that they are exposed to the HISTORY and HERITAGE of Britain. There is a general lack of knowledge when it comes to today’s youth. I am sure you are all familiar with the term: Jeremy Kyle people. This needs to prevented to stop more of them populating.

    When they are young, let’s say 5, the child should have to read the history of Britain. It is important that they’re tarnished with stories about famous citizens, leaders, generals, politicians, etc. Also introduce them to key events and battles.


    Different idols

    This could be nicely incorporated with the National Trust or English Heritage. They offer an array of historic properties and locations up and down the country. Why not force children to visit these places? Let them appreciate class, dignity, heritage and history. Maybe introduce a class camp? The class camp will teach them manners, music, key skills etc.

    By the time the child is a teen, he/she will have a broader knowledge, and hopefully more class. Rather than blasting music out of a mobile phone and drinking white lightening in a park at night, they will realise that their actions are despicable and somewhat animal like.

    Force feeding 'culture' to someone in reality probably wouldn't do much.
    Let people live how they want to live, not everyone wants to appreciate British heritage xD

    I am not accusing everyone as classless. But the vast majority are.

    I completely agree, and this is how I'll be bringing up mine. Surrounded by books, culture, and class.

    I was brought up in a similar way, my parents educated me about current affairs, politics, and bits of history since the age of 5. I started reading the Harry Potter books aged 6, as well as various others. Our house has several hundred historical books, as well as other topics such as artists, fiction, anything really. They always took me for outings to countryside places, stately homes, art galleries, museums etc.

    Consequently, I'm a decent human being who deems it unacceptable to vandalise the local bus shelter and mug the elderly. I hate 'Jeremy Kyle people' haha. They bullied me for being a "posh prick" during school.

    Manners/respect/dignity would not come from force feeding the history of Britain.

    It might make people more knowledgeable about the past- but I doubt it would convince anyone to change their entire outlook/character etc.

    The three things you listed there can only really be taught by parents and really, no one can control that but them.

    No, you seem to be missing the point. Mathematics = school. This is OUTSIDE of school in an attempt to add more class, respect and knowledge to children.

    i think you'll find more often than not this already happens (in terms of our history is taught from an earliy age). the simply fact is every generation has the 'idea' to rebel against there parents. it just happens in different way than our predecessors.
    exposing people to different things may teach them, but just because you know somthing doesn't mean you use it...

    plus the leaders you wish to export into the childs mind are a little out dated. we are no longer the world power we used to be, jesus were shareing our military with the french. which im sure lord nelson has turned in his grave about...

    imo, they should be tought more about forward looking, new idea's that promote simlar idiology that previous generations grew up with.

    you have to remember the world has moved on. everything is sexualised now. even shampoo! more pressure should be put on the governement to kerb this in the media. which ultimatly creates issues with our human right to, freedom of speach and such but hey.

    you also have issues with educating the parents of the select few people you seem to target with this thread.

    I would never let my children read harry potter. Harry Potter is the symbol for authority disobeyance.

    The problem isn't with the children. It's with the parents who couldn't give a crap about them.

    What's wrong with that? I could talk from the age of one and I was reading books aimed at much older children at 5, and I was also learning about current affairs. I could write, and I had a more advanced vocabularly than most at that age.

    The reason? My mother spent an awful lot of time teaching me to talk, read, write etc. If parents spend enough time with their children, it's perfectly reasonable to think they'll be able to do these things at 5.

    It's a fictional book. If you take fiction as fact, then that's a different problem alltogether.
