Courage is necessary when being assertive—Stand up for yourself and defend your beliefs!
Courage becomes more important as students start to identify who they are and what they want for their lives. Today’s children are subjected to many outside influences—magazines, television, movies, internet, peers, etc. It can become difficult for youth to distinguish between positive and negative influences. Having courage means being assertive and standing up for your beliefs.
