2. Young people need our help
As adults, we are letting young people down by letting them deal with situations of our making, about which we turn a blind eye and ignore. We tell ourselves lies about the world, systems and structures that allow young people to hurt and be hurt. If you're a parent, take David Shanks' word and watch it, even if it's awkward, so you know what is going on for young people. Then be available, supportive and unjudgmental and, please, don't shame your kids out by diving into an awkward deep and meaningful about it.
