In this program, under the direction of a counselor, real-life teenagers talk about the potentially life-changing decisions they face daily – decisions about smoking, drinking, drugs, sex, lying, cheating, and shoplifting.
Viewers are asked to think about their own choices and vlaues, and what it means to be “ethical.” The teens in the program discuss the consequences that follow bad decisions. They stress the necessity of having a well thought-out plan to put into action when faced with a difficult choice.
Through first-person interviews and discussions about real-life experiences, students see that all choices have consequences and that everyone makes poor decisions.
By learning from those bad decisions, teens can grow into the kind of people they want to be: those who not only know what is right, but who do the right thing.
