  • 5 Second Decisions

    The most important, life changing decisions you will make as a teen will take 5 seconds. Should I get in that car? Should I go in? Should I leave? Should I try that? Those decisions take 5 seconds and they can effect your life forever. Being aware of that helped me make the better decisions.Karen

  • Substituting for Adults

    I often tell my high school students that you can't always count on adults to act like adults. This is true of all life settings, but it holds true in high school as well. My advice to students is they'll need to "step up" and be the adult in the absence of adult behavior. You\ll actually need to model a level-headedness and a resistance to escalating conflicts for the adults. Jim
