Tolerant Children

May 31, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

At a young age, children are taught the “golden rule,” the simple directive to treat others as you would like to be treated.

During adolescence, that command is still useful in teaching kids tolerance, an important life skill that sadly, many adults never learn. As we’ve seen throughout history, intolerance creates barriers of ignorance and fear that can lead to personal biases, discrimination, hate crimes and yes, even war.

As ominous as all of that sounds, the good news is that intolerance is easily prevented through education. In order for our children to enjoy a more peaceful world, as well as succeed as individuals in school, work and life, they must first learn tolerance.
