In the days before you present this session, reflect on how you personally resolve conflicts regarding right and wrong. Do you consult the religious teachings held in your mind? Do you reason things out with the Golden Rule or another such guide? Do you rely on conscience? How can you help youth find the guidance they need to negotiate the early teen years successfully?

In the moments before you present this session, with all preparations made, make a peaceful moment for yourself and for your connections with all. Breathe deeply. Know that your efforts to assist youth are themselves virtuous. Breathe deeply. Connect with what is good and true. Breathe deeply. Relax. Feel the energy of sharing fill you. Connect again with your leadership team, and be ready to greet your youth.
