These experiences constitute the bulk of a child’s academic life, most parenting efforts, and many cultural experiences. The curriculum for third grade, for example, provides a list of learning events that the teacher should ensure the student is exposed to and obtains mastery of before entering the fourth grade. Similarly, parents give children household responsibilities to prepare them for life as independent adults, and cultural communities involve youth members in important events to teach them traditions to pass along to yet future generations.

Are there positive goals separate from either risks or protective factors that could be enhanced, like teaching the basics of computer skills so that the students would profit from future course materials – and divert attention from needing to use violence? Generalization Three: Effective programs emphasize skill development and behavior change (Durlak, 2003: 65–66). Durlak points to accentuating the positive, rather than trying to get someone not to do something. For example, if an after-school activity is proposed so as to prevent the rise in tensions and violence among students, it is better to teach students how to behave in prosocial ways, rather than ordering them not to fight or punish them if they do.
