Kara’s Collection: Met—Always Met—in Love

Kara’s Collection: Met—Always Met—in Love | Youth Ministry Sites | Scoop.it
from an article originally posted August 31, 2014…

I’m back to the face-down days I knew 2 years ago. It hurts to lose
moments, memories, sweet tender times in the haze of drugs. My dear
neighbor came over and reminded me of our conversation, which had vanished
from my mind. Blaaaaaa

I quietly rested my head beside my guy last night and whispered my fears to
him, What if all this hard isn’t working? His face mirrored my fears. This
battle is so painful. We long, long, long to know all this hard is working.
Linda Foote's insight:
For working with high school and college students learning to wrestle with faith in the midst of great trials, this post has powerful insights.

Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse but the rest of the world isn’t listening

Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse but the rest of the world isn’t listening | Youth Ministry Sites | Scoop.it

":In 1992, 14-, 15- and 16-year-olds in every school in Iceland filled in a questionnaire with these kinds of questions. This process was then repeated in 1995 and 1997.

 

The results of these surveys were alarming. Nationally, almost 25 per cent were smoking every day, over 40 per cent had got drunk in the past month. But when the team drilled right down into the data, they could identify precisely which schools had the worst problems – and which had the least. Their analysis revealed clear differences between the lives of kids who took up drinking, smoking and other drugs, and those who didn’t. A few factors emerged as strongly protective: participation in organised activities – especially sport – three or four times a week, total time spent with parents during the week, feeling cared about at school, and not being outdoors in the late evenings."

 

"Today, Iceland tops the European table for the cleanest-living teens. The percentage of 15- and 16-year-olds who had been drunk in the previous month plummeted from 42 per cent in 1998 to 5 per cent in 2016. The percentage who have ever used cannabis is down from 17 per cent to 7 per cent. Those smoking cigarettes every day fell from 23 per cent to just 3 per cent.

The way the country has achieved this turnaround has been both radical and evidence-based, but it has relied a lot on what might be termed enforced common sense. “This is the most remarkably intense and profound study of stress in the lives of teenagers that I have ever seen,” says Milkman. “I’m just so impressed by how well it is working.”

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

This article is wonderful and, to me, very important because it confirms my beliefs (and I imagine those many others) about what works in helping teens avoid negative life choices and embracing life affirming ones. Well worth reading.
