Choosing Wisely
June 5, 2019

What exactly constitutes a wise choice? Is it a choice that ultimately puts you in a good light? Is it a decision the affects others positively? Is it subjective to the situation you happen to be in at the moment? I don’t know about you, but this is a really tough question for me. I would like to think I make wise choices consistently, but the truth of the matter is I don’t. Many times I have smacked myself in the forehead and said “if only I hadn’t…” or ” I wish I had…”.

So, if it's hard for us as adults to make wise choices, how much harder is it for our teenagers to do the same? So much of who they are at this point is governed by emotions. And we know emotions are not very helpful in making wise choices, at all!

Choices are and will always be a part of most aspects of our daily lives. How do we help our teens learn how to make those choices count? I would like to encourage you to watch this video that deals with our teens and their choices. Maybe it will give you a different perspective. And different perspectives often lead to different choices!
