My brother had a friend who was 26 years old, he knew him for many years from his school days, he use to come over to our house all the time so my family knew him very well.
One day he came over to meet my brother, but my brother wasn't home at the time, I was home alone, everyone else was out, my mum and dad were still at work. I let him in the house, I told him he could wait inside as my brother had only gone to the local shops.
As they grow up, youth are exposed to a number of factors which may either increase their risk for, or protect them from, problems such as abusing drugs or engaging in delinquent behavior.
“Risk factors” are any circumstances that may increase youths’ likelihood of engaging in risky behaviors. Conversely, “protective factors” are any circumstances that promote healthy youth behaviors and decrease the chance that youth will engage in risky behaviors.
