Teens today are exposed to many risks—the ready availability of drugs, tobacco and alcohol; pressure to have sex; dangers on the Internet; inexperienced, drowsy and drunk driving; extreme diets; and more. When faced with difficult and life-altering decisions, teens often lack the skills needed to understand and evaluate the potential problems before they choose to act. Program provides a step-by-step approach to learning and applying good decision-making skills. Includes risk assessment and risk management tools for all areas of their lives, from school to friends to work to situations that potentially endanger their well-being. Profiles several teens who talk about decisions they now regret. With hindsight, what could they have done to achieve a different and better outcome? Describes how risk taking is a normal part of adolescence while emphasizing the importance of distinguishing between healthy and unhealthy risks.
