That genitals shouldn’t be spoken about.
–They are private but they aren’t rude. We need to teach children names for body parts including genitals alongside proper sex-ed.
“You should never hate anyone in your family.”
–If a certain family member did you wrong, never repented & would gladly fuck you over again, you should be free to detest them as much as you like.

–Old, ugly, fat or serious-looking people are almost always the villains in TV. This often makes kids fear elderly people and make unfair connections between appearance and personality.
“Flattery will get you nowhere.”
–It took me too long to learn that in the real world it usually helps get you places, so go ahead and let little kids learn that sucking up works.
That the world is fair. Good things don’t always happen to good people and bad people sometimes live great.
Saying “don’t cry” or “man up.”
“Adults are always right and kids shouldn’t question that.”
That you can’t have a platonic friendship with the opposite sex without having it questioned.
“Because I said so” or “because I’m the parent”. Give me a reason, Karen!
That blue is for boys and pink is for girls.
