Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour

Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour

  1. Posted on April 3, 2019

Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour go together like mothers and sleepless nights, am I right? I always thought my son was too intelligent, too well-adjusted and sufficiently able to stand back from peer pressure to engage in risky behaviour. That was until last year when he had settled into his early teens. His father and I noticed him talking about, then flirting with, some crazy-brave behaviour in which some of his peers were engaging....

On his time at Trinity.... I came to Trinity in Year 10 and my initial impression was that it was a very welcoming place. My father was an old boy, and after a less than great experience at my previous school, the Principal at the time, Tony Curtis, welcomed me with open arms. I knew the school had a good sporting program, and I was proud to be a part of the 1st Water Polo team in Year 10. Unfortunately, I lost almost all my vision towards the end of Term 1 of Year 10....

Trinity and beyond. My experience at Trinity was a very positive one. I started in 1984 and finished in 1992 and the friendships I formed during those years are still very strong today. I loved the balance between education, religion and sporting activities that the school provides and feel extremely lucky to have had such a great environment for learning and social development. When I graduated ...

Talking about feminism. A chat with my adolescent son a couple of weeks ago led me down a dark highway of the internet. He told me he was watching, on the recommendation of some mates, some anti-feminist content, and worst of all, he was finding it funny! Knowing that my son was probably trying to get a reaction from me, I took a deep breath and asked him what he understood about feminists and what his problem was with them....

Fifteen - that’s the age at which Australian parenting expert Michael Grose says children should be capable of looking after themselves, and their mum and dad become redundant as parents. While you hold that big breath you just inhaled, consider that in past centuries children often did leave home at this age to take up apprenticeships or other work. As Mr Grose says, and parents of older ...
