- Take this course or that one…..Stay home and study or go out?
- Continue a friendship or not? If not, how do I convey my choice?
- Follow the crowd and ‘do’ drugs or stand up to one’s values and not?
- Report the wrongdoing of a friend or ‘zip thy lips’ to stay friends?
- How to do the best they can in their classes at school and in extracurricular activities.
- Get along with friends, their own family and extended family members.
- Accept social invitations with alcohol, drugs at parties and unsupervised gatherings or say ‘no’.
- Manage their personal time between studying, school commitments, family, friends, and possibly a part-time job.
- Decide whether to go to college or just get a minimum wage job; if ‘yes’ to college, which college and which major.
There may be times they need to make a choice that is different than what the ‘gang’ or others may want them to do.
All this involves making the best possible choice quickly and confidently. Making the best choice possibly is so important because it may alter a teen’s life permanently.
And they have that with the simple steps in our Success by C.H.O.I.C.E. program.
To help your teen learn an easy way to make the best choice possible, click on the downloadable document in the upper right area of this page for info about my course for teens; then call 949-378-4126.
Note, the key components of this easy way to make wise choices can be added to existing programs to unite efforts between schools and educational agencies that help teenagers learn lifelong skills.

From another group of 25 people who attended a five-week workshop, here are some of their comments:
“Aneta showed me how to see the opportunities ahead of me in my life better before I make a choice.”
“I liked learning a system to make choices that benefits me and others around me.”
“Aneta’s real life examples, the visuals, and most of all, the role plays to each technique taught.”
“I loved Aneta’s role plays, the visuals, and the ‘What If’ skits.”
“I enjoyed Aneta’s stories and visuals, but most of all, our role plays.”
“I enjoyed all the sharing of how choices determine our lives.”
“I enjoyed all the activities, role plays. Connecting with others was really helpful!”
“Aneta’s process taught me how to handle stress and how to manage my time more wisely.”
“Best part was learning how to be more aware of my choices and how to consider others besides myself.”
