The Decision Making Model
Step One- The situation is that Steve wants to go to the schools most exciting football game but he has to babysit his brother the same night.
Step Two- The options are going to the game and not letting his parents go see their friends are not going to the game and watching his brother.
Step Three- The two outcomes are that if he goes to the game his parents will be sad because they haven't seen their friends in years, or he doesn't go to the game and his parents will be happy.
Step Four- I think that both of them are a good thing to do but he can only choose one.
Step Five- I think that he should go to the game because his parents friends could come and see them but he can't miss the big game.
Step Six- I think it is a good decision to go to the game his parents will understand because he has already made plans.
Step One- The situation is that i have been invited to two parties a popular and a not so popular and you don't know which one to go to.
Step Two- The options are that i can go to the not so popular party and not be friends with the cool kids or go to the popular party and hurt the not so popular person feelings.
Step Three- One outcome will be that i will be friends with the cool kids, and the other is i will make somebody happy if i come to their party.
Step Four- I think that they both are good choices but you can only choose one.
Step Five- I think he should go to the not so popular party because he already told the guy he was coming.
Step Six- I think that it is a good choice because he can't go back on his word and change plans if he already made plans.
