Questions Can Make Decisions Easier

If your teen is having trouble making a decision, it helps to ask a few questions. Ask your teen to consider:

-Which choice would your teen be most proud of?
-If someone your teen looks up to had this choice to make, what would that person choose?
-How far into the future will each choice affect your teen?
-If others are involved, will they be treated the way your teen wants to be treated?
-What will be the consequence of each choice? How will your teen deal with the consequences?
