Concepts for crucial conversations
Guidance for conversations with youth in a cyber-powered world, wherein it is easy to believe things that are not true and focus on things that do not really mater.
Brave versus Risky
Both can make you feel discomfort. However, you are brave when you do the right thing even though you are afraid of displeasing your friends or being left out; while risky is ignoring your little voice warning you that it’s not right or dangerous.
Parent exercise: Identify some examples of when you or a peer confused brave and risky. Or refer to a headline in the news. Ask your child /teen what they think and why it is important to recognize the difference?
