What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already?

The other day I posted Life Skills – How to Reconcile a Checkbook which I actually did learn in elementary school long ago in the 1980s in New York and revisited in middle school in the 1990s.

I’ve seen videos about a dad who teaches kids with no dad how to do basic tasks like changing a tire.

So the question comes to mind…

What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already?


Published by Patty Gordon

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.

  1. Life skills like budgeting and money management! This would really help, especially as people impulse buy a lot more and have no idea about the harsh consequences of pay later schemes

      1. Exactly! Something everyone needs to learn how to do as well. It would make more sense and could be seen as ‘applied maths’ really!


    1. Especially since COVID hit I’m hearing a lot of parents who wish their kids were learning ways to deal with stress. The ABCs are important but having a more well rounded education that included books, mental and physical health would seem to be what people want.
