The months of December and January find us in the positive identity category of the assets framework.
The category includes personal power, self esteem, sense of purpose and positive view of personal future.
When I review the category, an old saying comes to mind, “pot calling kettle, pot calling kettle.”
It takes a lot of work to build this asset in youth, if you don’t feel like you own it yourself. It is never too late to build your own assets, so look into resources at Mesa Public Library, attend a class at UNM-LA or talk to a counselor about an issue.
The first asset in the category, number 37, is personal power. Do the youth that you live with, work with, or see on a regular basis feel like they have control over what happens to them?
There are certain things that happen that we have no control over, but especially in the middle years, youth need choices to see that they have some control over what happens to them.
Occasionally, kids will make a bad choice and it is our role as adults to help them learn from the situation, accept the responsibility, suffer the consequence and move on.
