Because isn't the point of high school to learn how to live as an adult?
1. How to manage money.
I'm broke as hell but thank god I know the Pythagorean Theorem!
2. Personal Hygiene and skin care.
Maybe if I knew how to properly wash my face (and what product to use) I wouldn't have had a face full of acne for most of my high school years!
3. Proper nutrition.
Not only HOW to eat properly but WHY it's important!
4. EVERYTHING mental health related.
What is it? Why is it important? Why are YOU important? How can we sustain our mental health? Who can we ask for help when in crisis?
4. Everyday life skills.
I've seen people in college that have no idea how to do their own laundry. Things like laundry, basic cooking and cleaning should be taught in high school.
Social skills, how to communicate properly when there is an issue, and why communication is important.
6. The importance and benefit of unplugging from social media.
Less social media, less drama. I wish I knew the importance of unplugging in high school. Knowing this now has helped my well-being in the most positive way.
7. How to cope with stress in a healthy way.
Especially since school provokes a lot of stress in high school students, it would be beneficial to know how to cope in a healthy way. The less mental breakdowns, the better.
What are they? Why do we have to pay them? Why is it important to keep track of them? How do we manage them efficiently?
