In this course, students will learn how to deal with everyday dangers as well as uncommon crises and emergencies.  Homeschoolers will learn how to cope with pressures that teenagers face such as drug and alcohol use, dating violence, sexually transmitted diseases, and gang violence.  By learning how to best deal with these dangers, homeschooled students will be better prepared to live happy, healthy lives free of stress and anxiety.  We will also focus on current events and news studies to inform youth about current destructive trends among teens and how to approach them.
