Every year thousands of students graduate high school totally clueless and in the dark about what to do next. From considering college, to seeking meaningful jobs, to mapping out their career paths, many students find themselves ill-equipped to make these important life decisions. In their new book It’s Your Decision for Teens: A Commonsense Guide to Making Better Choices (published by AuthorHouse), teen counselors and authors Al Foderaro and Denise Schmidt present a guide to help teenagers plan for life after high school.
It’s Your Decision for Teens comes from more than 30 years of Foderaro and Schmidt’s experiences assisting hundreds of young people as they made important decisions regarding their futures.
“Teens need all the help they can get making better decisions and America’s high school and college dropout crisis is a perfect example of how many students are making some very bad choices,” Foderaro says. “There is an assumption made in our society that everyone will just know how to make important decisions when they have to and that has proven to be totally inaccurate. Bad decisions lead to bad results and unfortunately too many young people are making bad decisions.”
It’s Your Decision for Teens is a concise 65 page workbook written to help young people make better decisions. “The teenage years are a bridge between childhood and adulthood,” Foderaro says, “and decisions made during this time will have significant impact on the overall quality of the adult lives of teenagers.”
Foderaro and Schmidt offer teens a useful tool that will provide them with the knowledge they will need to make the thoughtful and carefully considered academic, career and life decisions that lie ahead. It’s Your Decision for Teens aims to teach youth how to make better decisions and become more accountable for the outcomes of those decisions.
