It is absolutely necessary to teach kids basic survival skills irrespective of their gender and race.
Firstly, In some parts of the world, basic skills are taught by government by introducing mandatory military service. In Countries like Israel, everyone needs to join mandatory military service irrespective of there gender. During this service, they are taught basic skills like self-defence and first aid.
Secondly, In countries like India, Parents are now much aware about the need of basic skills for teenagers due to global immigration as these skills will help their kids to survive in any part of the world. Previous there was a bias when it comes to teaching cooking skills to men and self-defence to women now a days both men and women are interested in learning all types of skills. However, when it comes to western countries, most of the teenagers leave home and start living individually and take jobs and due to this, they were taught to do all the household chores by themselves unlike Asian countries
Thirdly, In private schools and hostels. These skills are encouraged to learn as extra curriculum activities by introducing competitions among children. For example, Schools conducting Self- defence competitions like karate for children irrespective of gender and encouraging Cooking as the passion in all the genders. Nowadays Teenagers are taught basic first-aid skills which can get handy in case of emergency around them.
Conclusion, In this competitive world, everyone should learn basic skills which help them survive in day to day life irrespective of their gender and race.
