Our Asset of the week is number three, other adult relationships.
This Asset is when a young person has support from three or more adults that are not their parents.
Way back in 2009, our data reported that 48 percent of our sixth through eighth grade students felt they had this Asset.
The current data, for 2013, reports that 52 percent now feel like they have this Asset.
My hope is that you don’t have to look too far for where adults are, in the life of your child.
They can be friends, neighbors, parents of their friends, coaches, teachers, congregation members, or adults in some sport, club or organization.
They can be found just about anywhere. We just may not recognize the impact they have on kids.
If you think it can’t be you, think again. It doesn’t require any special degree, training or skill. You just have to be kind and actually give a darn.
There is a song by the cappella group called, Straight No Chaser, that truth be told has a song that everyone needs to take to heart.
From their latest album, an old school reference for you young kids, from their latest CD, “Under the Influence.”
The track says, “The difference is they try and teach us how to use the tools. I guess we gotta care, we got a lot at stake.”
