Survival skills are techniques which are meant to provide basic necessities for human life which include food, water, shelter, first aid and self defense etc. In my opinion, it is crucial to teach survival techniques to teenagers irrespective of gender, caste and any other things.
Cooking is one of the most important survival skills to develop because it is main pillars of survival. We must cook food properly or you might risk disease and illness. When students are taught at an early age on how to cook, they develop the habit of preparing their own food even when they are at home. Some teenagers might begin to embrace the art of cooking and trigger an interest to take cooking as career. For instance, some schools in Japan have cooking clubs at the early stages so that students would also promote healthy lifestyle.
First aid is the immediate and initial help given to anyone who suffer injury or sudden illness to intervene the condition from getting worse. Teenagers are at high risk of incurring injuries whether slight or severe through accidents. Equipping teenagers with basic first aid skills by giving them training is essential to reduce mortality rate through accidents. There is a teenager name Asim, who aged just 14 saved her grandfather’s life by recognising the symptoms of his heart attack and treating him until the paramedics arrived to take over.
Self defense classes would help teenagers in building self-confidence and discipline, improve physical and mental condition. This survival skill would help students particularly when they are walking alone at night after classes, that’s the time when students are most vulnerable to attack. There are many other surviving techniques like building a temporary shelter, fire etc.
Clear we all have responsibility to teach survival skills which plays a vital role in human life to sustain in any type of natural environment. Schools should include survival skills in their curriculum to promote importance of Surviving techniques.
