Survival skills are techniques that a person may use to sustain life in any type of natural environment or built environment. 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 the main pillar of survival. We must cook food properly or you might risk getting disease and illness. When students are taught at an early age 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 a career. For instance, some schools in Japan have cooking clubs for young students for promoting a healthy lifestyle.
First aid is the immediate and initial help given to anyone who suffers 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 the mortality rate through accidents. Asim, a 14-year teenager, identified the symptoms of his grandfather’s heart attack. He treated his grandfather until the paramedics arrived for help.
Self-defence classes would help teenagers in building self-confidence and discipline, improve their 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.
We all have the responsibility to teach survival skills to the next generation that would play a vital role in sustaining human life in any crucial situation. Schools should include survival skills in their curriculum to promote the importance of surviving techniques.
