Fourth Nine-Weeks Focus: Responsible Decision Making/Choices

As parents, we all worry from time to time about the decisions our children make and the negative consequences they might endure. How do we support our children with the tools necessary to make good choices? Decision making is a skill to teach, practice and develop. Parents, caregivers, and adults can support children in learning how to make good decisions by teaching and working through the decision-making process. Support your child with decision making by following the steps of identifying the problem, brainstorming solutions, identifying possible consequences, making a choice, taking action and evaluating the outcome.
