THE DECISION MAKING MODEL


STEP 1: State the situation.
Bobby has two friends that want him to go to a party. When Bobby go's to the party, he realizes that there are drugs at the party. What should Bobby do?

Step 2:  List the options.
Bobby could stay at the party and be cool and do the drugs. Or he could get up and leave the party.

Step 3: Weigh the possible outcomes.
If Bobby stay's at the party, he could do the drugs and kill his insides. Or become addicted to the drugs and start doing them all the time. The good choice would be to leave the party and tell an adult.

Step 4: Consider values.
leaving the party would keep him drug free and want harm him. Staying at the party would probably get him used to drugs and hurt himself.

Step 5: Make a decision and act.
I would leave the party because I wouldn't want to do the drugs and get addicted to them. Plus I am just hurting myself when I take them.

Step 6: Evaluate the Decision
I think the decision that I chose was right because if he left he wouldn't get addicted to drugs and it wouldn't hurt him.
