The Strategic Reality Files

I've always enjoyed a wide variety of interests in life, and when I sat down to formulate exactly what kinds of information I wanted to share in this blog, FOR TEENS was a top choice to survive the final cut. Enjoy!

Strategic Reality: A mostly unknown or well-hidden truth that, once discovered and strategically implemented, imparts the beholder with a newfound sense of control over their Health, Wealth, Wisdom and Happiness!  Richard L. Bristol

Welcome to "The Strategic Reality Files" FOR TEENS Blog!

When I was a teen a few centuries ago, I received a lot of bad advice from adults. And not because they intended to harm me in any way. They were well-meaning, naturally, but clueless when it came to the more nuanced aspects of Strategic Realities. Very little has changed over the past 60 years. Today's parents, like many parents of the past, teach their children falsehoods they believe to be correct, because that's what they were taught.

In some cases, experienced adults over 60 can serve as neutral mentors for teens, taking pressure off both sides, while preserving the important lines of communication between the generations. Bridging the gap between parents and offspring, however, must be a two-way street. "Because I said so" isn't effective teaching, nor is turning up the playlist volume and tuning out mom and dad.

What I hope to achieve with this blog is to discover valuable methods and resources that may help adults and teens work through the perplexities of life.  In so doing, I will undoubtedly reveal certain Strategic Realities that may challenge the "conventional wisdom" of the times, causing an immediate and profound need for deep reflection on both sides of the divide.

This is my first post in this category and it is intentionally short as I stub out the rest of the categories.
