2. We are taught not to put up with others' criticizing us unfairly.
Which one is correct?

Both are acceptable.
This is one that would benefit from a rewrite: ... not to put up with unfair criticism from others.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
