Positive Role-Modelling: Supporting Youth on Their Path to Adulthood

Crawford Bay CBESS May 10, 2019
with David Hatfield, M.Ed., M.A. (C)

For: Parents, educators, youth workers, care givers, and people working with youth. Research shows that young people are more likely to exhibit positive, responsible behaviour when they have parents and other adults in their lives who model positive, responsible behaviour.

Role models show young people how to live with integrity, optimism, hope, determination, and compassion. They play an essential part in a child’s positive development. As parents we worry about young people’s attraction to risk and intensity however this can be seen as a natural adolescent desire for wider experiences and a construction of a young adult identity. We can assist our youth and children in the important search for their unique gifts and purpose. There are many ways to be a positive role model for our young people and as a community we can work together to cocreate this kind of leadership.

This presentation and discussion is suitable for any person who has involvement with children and youth. Let’s work together to help positively support the next generation of adults.
