Introduction to Getting Help
Asking for help is not always on the top of our list of things to do. Asking for help means you don’t know what you are doing, right? It means you can’t figure it out by yourself so someone else is going to have to help you, right?
Wrong! We here at The Youthhood have all needed help from others at one time or another. It helps to know there is someone who can help you, especially when you are learning about your rights as a teenager and your responsibilities in life!
Getting help actually means you are smart! Knowing when to ask for support or knowing when someone else has ideas and information that can make you more successful is a sign of strength.
Most people like to help; it’s just that they don’t always know how. The key is figuring out who to ask for help. You also need to know when to ask for help, how to ask, and why you are asking!
