Welcome to October and the Asset category of Support.
This week we will look at the number one and number two Assets.
Number one is family support, when family life provides high levels of love and support.
Our data from 2009 shows our youth ranked themselves at 67 percent. The 2013 data shows 75 percent.
This is good news as the numbers are headed up and that it is exciting to show progress.
The second Asset is positive family communication, when a young person and her or his parent(s) communicate positively, and young person is willing to seek advice and counsel from parent(s).
Our 2009 data shows the ranking at 34 percent, while the 2013 data shows the current percentage at 44 percent.
To our 2009 data, I say, yikes.
The upward trend is great at 10 percent, but there is so much more room for improvement. If your vehicle worked well 66 percent of the time, would that be OK? We still need to make some strides, so hang in there.
I remember reading one time that you should never talk to your spouse any less respectful, than you would talk to your best friend. I hope we can extend that thought to include our children.
I go back to the demonstration we have called, A Day in the Life of A Teen.
