This easy three step process should help you to make good decisions:
1. Stop - Stop what you are doing and focus your attention on
2. Think - Think about what you are going to do before you act.
Think about possible consequences of your decision. How will it affect

3. Go - After you have thought about which choice would be the
best, "Go With It."

Who Hates Harold? by Jules Older
Review: This book is about a boy named Harold who everyone ignores accidentally
one day. He runs into a bully. The bully stands up on the desk and asks
the class, "Who hates Harold?" Everyone put their hands up because it
was the bully asking. Everyone except Daniel the new boy. He went
to the front of the class and said, "I like Harold!" The rest of the
kids in the class put there hands down and said, "I like Harold too!"
Moral of story - To make your own decisions and not let others put peer
pressure on you.
