DON’T go to sleep There is a new episode of Pretty Little Liars and you want to watch it but you have to go to sleep because of your big exam the next day… You watch the show anyway and you fall asleep during the exam. You fail, and your mom and dad are contacted because you fell asleep in class.
DON’T practice on your sports Your coach says to practice but instead you want to play video games so you play video games…. In the game you stink, you strike out, and you get pulled out of the game.
DON’T do your chores You text your friend instead of doing chores and your mom says if you keep texting them she will take away your phone and you will be grounded….. You text them anyway and you get grounded. Your phone is taken away, and you don’t get to use it for a week.

Highly Defective Teens Think Win-Lose See life as a vicious competition. Habit 4 by Kieran and Jovanna
Get ‘em first Your classmate is out to get you, so you'd better get ‘em first.
They win, you lose. Don’t let anyone else succeed at anything because, remember, if they win, you lose.
Drag them down! If it looks like you’re going to lose, however, make sure you drag that sucker down with you.
You were born with a mouth so use it. Make sure you talk a lot. It doesn’t matter if the teacher is talking, if a classmate is talking, or even if your mom or dad is talking. Just keep talking Habit 5: Talk First and Pretend to Understand by Caleb Reynolds
Always Express Your Side Of The Story First Before anybody else gets to say anything share your part of the story first. Don’t let anybody share their side of the story. Make sure every understands your views.
Pretend To Listen By Nodding And Saying Uh-Huh When someone is talking just pretend to listen. Don’t actually pay attention to what they’re saying. Remember no one needs to understand their views as long as everybody understands your part.
If You Really Want Their Opinion, Give It To Them Tell them your opinion. Let them know what you think. It doesn’t matter about what their opinion is. Just as long as they know your opinion everything is all right.
