Teen Wise is a book that introduces the concept of using Self-Serving Strategies effectively in the daily lives of preteens and teenagers for the betterment of their future.  Each chapter is devoted to its own grade level, beginning with the sixth and ending with the twelfth.  Its focus is to help preteens and teenagers develop cognitive reasoning skills by providing real-life dilemmas and scenarios that they may encounter in their everyday lives.  Its purpose is to provide solutions before problems develop or occur.  Each age appropriate example contains challenging decision-making situations that require action.

 

Here is a preview of two examples in this book.

 

Chapter #4: The Eighth Grade
Example #2.)  You are in the eighth grade and have an important homework assignment due in a few days that you haven’t started yet.  The report requires in depth research complete with a bibliography, proper citations, and a minimum of five pages.  You express how overwhelmed and frustrated you are to a classmate and he/she suggests that you simply buy a finished report and claim it as your own.  You want to relax and not worry about this assignment anymore, but you know that buying a paper and submitting it as your own work is plagiarism. 

 

What are your options?

Chapter #8: The Twelfth Grade
Example #4.)  You are in the twelfth grade and have been invited to go to a party as a guest of a guy/girl you like.  The party is at his/her house and their parents will be there.  You have heard through the grapevine that his/her parents are considered 'cool parents' because they allow co-ed sleepovers and provide alcoholic beverages at their parties for the teenagers.  You really like this person and would love the opportunity to get to know him/her better.  You know that underage drinking is a serious matter and that a co-ed sleepover is probably inappropriate for teenagers.  You also know that your parents are not going to give you permission to attend this party if you tell them the truth.  You want to go because you think it will be fun, but you know you would have to lie to your parents.

 

What are your options?

Answer choices and probable outcomes for these two examples can be explored in Teen Wise.
