Growing up, how did you learn to be courageous?
I watched my parents and siblings and did what they did
My parents talked to me when I was scared and that helped me be brave
I planned what I would do in scary situations ahead of time
I followed the example of my favorite superheroes
People tried to help, but in the end I just had to face my fears on my own
