Being assertive means being able to put across your point of view while respecting the opinions of others. It is very useful for young people to learn how to be assertive as it will enable them to express themselves confidently without fear of ridicule. It will also ensure they allow others to express a different viewpoint.
Assertive people do not view a difference of opinion as a threat. Rather, they welcome them and view them as an opportunity to start a discussion. As they mature into adults, young people will find that assertiveness is a key skill which will help them communicate effectively and make valuable contributions in many ways.
