It is very impressive to include in a particular business case the need to introduce peace and politics to kids. The business case for the style and process may vary but the end goal remains the same and that is to make kids more aware of how they should behave so that tolerating misbehavior, unintentional discrimination, and other culture-sensitive activities is prevented.
Another concern in which kids can be exposed at such young age is to learn how to manage their money well. Tell them how money works today. Give them scenarios in which they are challenged to choose the right option. Motivate them through positive reinforcements; appreciate how they are able to save money and how they refuse to buy things that are not really necessary and significant at the moment.
Another current concern today is the safety of children from violence and abuse. They cannot be forever ignorant of this troublesome world. However, it does not mean that at their age, they can easily understand what is going on or personally experience any traumatic event.
Thus, it is important that they must be constantly reminded to be at the right place at the right time. They should avoid going to places that pose potential threats and harm. Further, kids must learn how to surf the internet more responsibly. There must also be means of enhancing their response behavior and skills when dealing with possible emergencies.
More importantly, the surroundings must not be described to kids in a too pessimistic or too optimistic manner. Allow kids to appreciate better and assess better by showing them both negative and positive aspects of an event, perspective, or behavior.
Another important component related to peace and politics is to be logical and sensible in your discussions with the kids. If you are talking about emotionally challenging experiences or future circumstances, their age and capacity to understand must be well considered. Further, if they are very curious and adventurous, allow them enough freedom but know exactly when to interfere and how to correct them if they are quite wrong or perhaps exploring things that are unsuitable for their age.
Classroom education is also a good training ground for all kinds of kids in learning how to be social and political in their actions and values in life. Thus, educators must be fully aware of the opportunities that classroom education can offer in building future citizens who are free and responsible for what they think, say, and do.
