The BIG 5 on Assessing Risk: Teaching Kids for Life

Teaching kids how to assess risk is crucial for their safety and future success. 

Why it matters:

  • Preventing disaster: Assessing risk helps kids avoid dangerous situations and prevent potential disasters. Right here in Toledo, each year, kids are lost in boat accidents on the Maumee river.
  • Promoting well-being: By understanding risks, kids can make informed decisions that prioritize their physical and mental well-being.
  • Building resilience: Teaching risk assessment empowers kids to navigate challenges, adapt to uncertainty, and bounce back from setbacks.
  • Shaping future success: Making good choices based on risk evaluation sets a foundation for future success and positive outcomes.
  • Lifelong skills: Risk assessment is a valuable life skill that prepares kids to make sound decisions in various aspects of their lives.
