RECOGNISE THE GOOD IN YOUTH

Recognise GOOD in youth

The dysfunctional and aberrant behaviour of a small percentage of young offenders, unfortunately colours the social perceptions held of young people in general.

Many, many – indeed the vast majority – of young people who are decent, principled and upright human beings. It is not fair that their reputations, individual or collectively, should be sullied by the behaviours of the minority.

‘Old ones’ like me need to keep balance and perspective about how we think of and appreciate young people.

We ought also acknowledge those who, having gone off the rails, see the light, repent of their former ways and cast aside and recidivist thought.
