4 Guidelines for Making Responsible Decisions
Is it Healthful? Is it Safe? Is it Legal? Do I show respect for myself and others? Do I follow the guidelines of responsible adults, such as my parents or guardians? Do I demonstrate good character?

5 Consequences A consequence is the result of an action.
Name a situation where an action resulted in a positive consequence. Name a situation where an action resulted in a negative consequence.

7 Decision Making Styles
Inactive Decision Making I waver back and forth trying to make a decision. I am never sure what to do. I wish I didn’t have to make decisions. Reactive Decision Making I follow the crowd. I do whatever my friends tell me to. I would rather please others than be responsible for my own actions. Proactive Decision Making I use the Responsible Decision Making Model I take responsibility for my decisions. I review options with parents or other adults.
