A survey asked KIDS between the ages of 6 and 11 what they would add as a new subject in school . . . and yes, video games did make the list. But so did a lot of other topics that you might not expect.
The top response was a class on “How to be a YouTube star,” which, in a way, could be considered an early business class.
“How to look after pets” was #2 . . . followed by “How to cook my favorite meal” . . . and “How to be good at video games.” “How to eat healthily” was #5, which is hard to believe, as is #6, “How to recycle.”
The rest of the Top 10 were: “How to be brave” . . . “How to cheer someone up” . . . “How to make people laugh” . . . and “How to be proud of myself.”
Others that made the Top 30 include: Looking after plants . . . making friends . . . telling a good joke . . . respecting other people . . . being a better listener . . . and how to make toast. (Not to be confused with “How to make A toast,” which they’re at least 10 years away from worrying about.)
