What's something you wish more kids could appreciate?

@annika the value of keeping negative and unhelpful thoughts to oneself, but I also wish more adults could appreciate that

@annika additionally the value of choosing battles rather than trying to fight every one you see

@annika these are probably not the answers you were looking for though so carry on

@annika The greater wildlife variety we had when I was a kid.

@annika Cursive writing. Seriously. I heard they stopped teaching it and that makes me sad.

Many kids do in fact understand this, I think. Many parents do not or don't teach it.
