Risky behaviors are those that potentially expose people to harm which can prevent them reaching their potential. Some risky behaviors are normal and part of growing up. However, there is a “line” which when crossed le50ads from normal/curious/ experimental behavior to behaviors that put children and young people at risk. This “line” can be different according to societal norms. It should be acknowledged that although children and young people may not be actively participating in behavior, observing or being exposed to the behavior can have an impact on their own behavior.

A person who is engaging in risky behaviors often endangers the life and well-being others around them. An example can be the irresponsible drinking and drug abuse which may lead to physical fights. Teenagers and youth are most vulnerable to risky behavior. Most of them drink, smoke and abuse drugs due to peer pressure.
