A lot of high school students are nervous about taking the SATs or ACTs... or simply afraid to fail their Algebra test. But they aren't alone in being nervous or fearful in life. Fear is actually a staple of life and doesn't disappear just because you get older. Courage is NOT never being afraid... it is being afraid of something, but doing it anyways. I believe it's important to equip our students not only with this knowledge, but the tools to dig deep and do things they are afraid to do. (within reason, of course! I speak of healthy things)
I recently asked our local San Marcos parents what they would do if they weren't afraid. I received some very humorous answers, some serious, and some heartfelt. You can read them below.
