For kids and teens, one of the most important things for them to know is that courage doesn’t always feel like courage. From the outside, courage often looks impressive, powerful, and self-assured. Sometimes it might look reckless or thrilling. From the inside though, it can feel frightening and unpredictable. Courage can be a trickster like that. This is because courage and fear always exist together. It can’t be any other way. If there is no fear, there is no need for courage. And Courage Matters!

The Parent University session on January 17, “Raising Sturdy Kids,” will provide a common understanding and language to both faculty and parents regarding the need and benefits of “healthy struggle” both in and out of the classroom. Additionally, the time with students is to help them better understand what shapes their perceptions of daily life and how they can learn to be young adults who can do “hard things.”
