Assets In Action: Tackle the tough questions with teens

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

While I may have already addressed that it is May, I am compelled to stress the overall theme of the month yet again.
May is a ridiculously nutty time of year for a whole lot of folks.
Recently, I was surprised to hear another parent talk about their living room being a little extra messy, which made me recall some things about May.
If you think I have a grain of common sense, take this from me. Find a night to sit around the dinner table and take a breath.
Tell the youth in your life that May is a stressful time for everyone and they need to pause and think before they act when tensions are high, or their brains aren’t working.
Think of the sayings that seem to be embedded into our very beings as people. Stop, Look and Listen means to look before you cross the train tracks. Stop, Drop and Roll is what you do when your clothing is on fire. Looking both ways before you cross the street keeps you safe.
I think the month of May should come with a similar warning sign, but I’m not sure I can encapsulate it into a cute little memory trigger.
What I want to say is watch what you say, don’t do it because everyone else is, mind you manners, just say no if you know it is wrong, and of course, be careful out there.
See no easy fix, huh?
