Prior to having kids, my post secondary eduction was in Early Childhood Education primarily focusing on kids under 5. I learned the importance of lessons that we teach our kids without even realizing.

"I am careful with my health and safety. I don't take chances on things that might harm me, even if it seems unlikely. My long term health and safety are more important than momentary satisfaction. Sometimes I am excluded, but I am included in other ways that do not put me at risk. I don't risk my health and safety to feel that I belong or am part of a group."

This is a wonderful life lesson. As they grow older, this attitude will be with them as they handle peer pressure to smoke, have **, do drugs, break the law, drink and drive etc.

I see that teaching the opposite lesson, that its more important to take chances so that you do not feel left out may be teaching a lesson that we are not always aware of, but might have other consequences as they get older and the issue changes from food to drugs, smoking and **.
