Comments on: "Teach children PEACE" (6)

  1. Yes, teach it so they can live it! 🙂

    • Yes, so they can know it exists. It’s difficult. A lot of kids see violence in the home, between family members, on TV, then they get bullied at school and go to classes that are devoted to war and history and heroes who killed people and became victors. They see their statues in parks. They play violent video games, read violent comic books. It’s so difficult when there is nothing out there that teaches peace. But we have to try to instill in kids that violence is a bad thing, it indicates a failure to communicate, it indicates power and greed, hatred and prejudice. We need to ask kids for their solutions to war. Ask them how they would teach peace. We need their help and we should listen to what they have to say.
