Scare tactics don’t work with drug education or sex ed either:) I remember driver’s ed classes where we were shown films of the aftermath of serious auto accidents. Bloody & graphic from the state highway patrol. My friends & I laughed about them. The young always feel invulnerable.
I think he has a great message. I know scare tactics do not go over well with me – I tend to give up, say “screw it”, and be worse because I get hopeless. But everyone is different, and perhaps scare tactics do well on some people. Adult people. Adult people who have maybe reached a low point. I do not think scare tactics should be tried on children…it’s too risky.
