Risky behavior can be “contagious,” according to Cal Tech. In other words, when parents ask, “If your friends jumped off of a cliff, would you do it, too?” Most kids would say, “Yes!” The researchers found that after observing others who do something risky, people are more likely to take risks of their own. So, if you want your kids to play it safer, encourage them to hang out with less of a risk-taking crowd.
