    50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education



    50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School: Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education by Charles J. Sykes
    2007 | ISBN: 031236038X | English | 192 pages | EPUB,PDF,MOBI | 1 MB

    Charles J. Sykes offers fifty life lessons not included in the self-esteem-laden, reality-light curriculum of most schools. Here are truths about what kids will encounter in the world post-schooling, and ideas for how parents can reclaim lost ground--not with pep talks and touchy-feely negotiations, but with honesty and respect. Sykes's rules are frank, funny, and tough minded, including:

    #1 Life is not fair. Get used to it.
    #7 If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure, so he tends to be a bit edgier. When you screw up, he's not going to ask you how you FEEL about it.
    #15 Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it "opportunity."
    #42 Change the oil.
    #43 Don't let the success of others depress you.
    #48 Tell yourself the story of your life. Have a point.



    Each rule is explored with wise, pithy examples that parents, grandparents, and teachers can use to help children help themselves succeed--in school and out of it.

    A few rules kids won't learn in school:
    #9 Your school may have done away with winners and losers. Life hasn't.
    #14 Looking like a slut does not empower you.
    #29 Learn to deal with hypocrisy.
    #32 Television is not real life.
    #38 Look people in the eye when you meet them.
    #47 You are not perfect, and you don't have to be.
    #50 Enjoy this while you can.
