Healthy risk-taking

For anyone who has heard me speak lately, you’ll remember that I’m big into promoting healthy risk-taking in young people.  It’s part of our DNA and comes so naturally to us during those adolescent years.  Yes, taken to extremes, it can lead to disaster but that’s when you bring in other factors like showing-off and substance abuse.  Here’s an excellent article on risk-taking.  My philosophy is:  take risks, take good, calculated risks but if you want to cross that line when it becomes downright stupid, just add peer pressure and alcohol!!!! http://www.generationnext.com.au/2012/12/tips-on-how-to-encourage-safe-risk-taking-in-teenage-boys/
