Bea Bincze Posted over 2 years ago What does it take to make the youth take charge and feel responsible for their own initiatives? I fully agree with Yasser's point. Showing an example is important. By this I mean, that we can show them, how we find our way, and how we can make the world better. This can give them confidence to come up with their own ideas! This is not always easy, I admit, I keep experimenting with my 8 year old son.
