Youth violence had always been an issue that adults I’ve grown up around tend to look at as a natural part of growing up. In reality, a child who is more likely to throw a punch rather than try to understand the situation is more prone to becoming an adult with temper and relationship issues. Though all of the children may not remember all of the lessons taught, the Talk it out, Walk it out, Wait it out motto is one that will make an impression. I have already noticed the quick response to this motto throughout my time with teaching Take Ten.
