Risky Business

Why Some Teens Take Chances

By Paul Asay

Posted: July 10, 2009

what happened
What Happened:

“Teens act like they’ll live forever.”

That’s what some adults say when they see teens drive too fast, play too hard or (ahem) take unnecessary chances.

what happened3
What Happened:

Some teens do strange, risky things for the opposite reason: They believe the clock is ticking, and they only have a few short years left.

what happened4
What Happened:

According to new research,*about 15 percent of teens believe they have only a 50-50 chance of reaching age 35. Some – about 1.4 percent of all teens polled – said there was virtually no chance they’d live to see their mid-30s.

*Published in the July issue of Pediatrics

what happened5
What Happened:

Experts say this sort of pessimism can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Studying these same teens during the next seven years, scientists found they were more likely to:

  • Contract AIDS
  • Get in serious, injury-inducing fights
  • Attempt suicide

Talk About It:

Taking risks can be fun and even rewarding, but it can also be dangerous.

What’s the riskiest thing you’ve ever done? Were you happy you did it?

talk about it7
Talk About It:
  • Why do you think you took that risk?
  • Is it because you’d thought it’d be fun?
  • Were all your friends were doing it?
talk about it8
Talk About It:
  • Do you know people who take risks because they don’t have very long to live?
  • Why do you think they feel that way?

Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol;

Death shall be their shepherd

And the upright shall rule over them in the morning.”

Psalm 49:13
