It is evident that Youth violence starts early in the lifespan. Physical aggression can be common among toddlers, and most children learn alternatives to using violence to solve problems and express their beliefs and emotions before starting elementary school. Some children, however, continue to be aggressive, and if their problematic behaviors are not addressed their aggression can persist and increase.
The other factors which lead to violent behavior other than early physical aggression are poor emotional control and weak social and problem-solving skills etc.

Talent Show: Mornelle Has Talent
This is a Local Champion project organized to find hidden talents from Mornelle /Morning side. Children and Youth under18 can participate in the talent show. As per World Health Organization (WHO), worldwide around 200,000 homicides occur among youth between age of 10years to 29 years, which is a total of 43 %. Some risk factors like attention deficit, hyperactivity, behavioral disorder or early involvement with drug, alcohol, or tobacco along with a low commitment to the school and school failure lead to violence in youth.
This is a program that is just a step to identify the talent of the youth, involve them in creative activities, and acknowledge their talent. Also introducing life skills and social development programs like organizing competitions such as debate, Science exhibition, singing, dance, and drawing competition, etc. are components of this program.
