This week, we look at Asset #1, Support. According to the Search-Institute, “The more love, support, care and adult contacts a child has, the more likely he or she is to grow up healthy.” This same logic applies to adults, just for the record, so in essence we are community building, not just youth building.
There are actually six categories we’ll look at over the next few weeks concerning support. If you can’t remember them all, just remember this, be nice and really give a darn about someone else.
In a perfect world, each family, whatever it looks like, would sit down at the dinner table at least once this week and identify what three ways the family supports each other. If those conversations come too hard, then try and think from a youth perspective what they might need and fill the gap.
Kids need to see adults model this for them and demonstrate the need for their support, too. This week, the neighbors on my block supported me in a community effort by making baked goods for a bake sale. The bake sale was successful and as a result, I’m on my way to a very large goal.
