When you make good choices and decisions, you reap the rewards.
When you make poor choices and decisions, you suffer the consequences. In high school, you have more freedom and more independence than you’ve ever had before. Of course, with this greater freedom and independence comes greater responsibility.
Learning to accept responsibility for your actions and for the choices that you make is an important part of growing up. You will have many decisions to make in high school. It is therefore important that you have good decisions-making skills. Try following these steps whenever you have a decision to make:
-determine your options
-write down the positive and negative aspects of each option
-make sure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision
-carefully consider the positive and negative aspects of each option
-make your decision
