Lateral Thinking as Problem Solving Tool

@Carol has a good point but @Gilmour takes teaching to a different level.
In my opinion, teaching kids about lateral thinking when they are not mature about what tools to use may be not good. Exposing too many tools at an age when the tools cannot be used may make them mere tools for passing exams. It should not become part of so many lists that kids are exposed to in pedagogic learning.
At later stage in professional life for people who have to find new creative solutions or solve problems this could be taught with much better results.
