I am with you on "you learn a lot of needless stuff and test-passing at school"
Nevertheless, said authors opinion that kids @ 11 should be taught parenting skills is at least lacking logic. You hardly can teach somebody to be a parent when n the person in question is still in need of parental care for h*self
IMO it 'd be better to teach them how to avoid the need of parenting skills.
Not that I think teaching for parents to be is a bad thing. In contrary. But that's too early. Too early to grok it and presumably too early to know if they want kids later or not.
And what if someone doesn't? Then it's another bucket of stuff one 'd be forced to learn having absolutely no use for it.
