“Individuals who use an effective decision-making process will definitely be more likely to achieve favorable outcomes and enjoy greater satisfaction and success.”

For decades America’s teenagers have been asked and expected to make important academic, personal, and career choices. After spending more than 30 years counseling hundreds of young people, authors Al Foderaro and Denise Schmidt recognized that many teens lacked the knowledge and confidence necessary to make the kind of decisions that will someday have a significant impact on the overall quality of their lives as adults.

It’s Your Decision for Teens: A Commonsense Guide to Making Better Choices” (published by AuthorHouse in 2011, available in English and Spanish) was written to help teens and young adults begin to take greater responsibility and control of their lives by learning practical, commonsense approaches to making decisions. This year, Foderaro and Schmidt are renewing their marketing efforts to a wider audience by way of a fresh marketing campaign.

“The overall theme of the book is to help teenagers learn how to make decisions regarding their education, fields of study and careers, in addition to those decisions dealing with personal relationships, future living and work environments, overall health and wellness, and leisure activities,” the authors say. “Individuals who use an effective decision-making process will definitely be more likely to achieve favorable outcomes and enjoy greater satisfaction and success.”

Foderaro and Schmidt hope that educators and parents of teens will utilize “It’s Your Decision for Teens” as a valuable resource that includes a Personal Development Checklist, a Success Team Inventory, Success Planners, and Discussion Questions that teens can review and update throughout their middle school, high school, and college years. By understanding the importance of using an effective decision-making strategy early in life, the authors hope more teens will lead positive and enjoyable lives.
