The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.

we need to have classes in school about money. debt to income ratio. how to apply for loans. how to set up a 401k.

why do we not have classes about how to pay your bills or what to do if your stove catches on fire or if your toilet starts to flood or how to change a flat tire?

these are real life situations. everyone should have some understanding on how to handle them and it’s much more important than learning about imaginary numbers imo.
