Each year in my Family and Consumer Sciences classes, my students read the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens, by Sean Covey; a 1998 copyright date. Although a highly successful book that students find applicable, it is very outdated, copies are falling apart, and it is no longer as relevant to todays challenges they face. In the 6 Most Important Decisions, Covey helps teens figure out how to approach many challenges they face: such as dealing with their parents, friends, being wise about sex, coping with substances, succeeding at school, careers, and how social media affects these challenges Best of all, he keeps the information and advice relevant to teenagers today!. Students can still use 7 Habits to help them cope with and manage the major challenges they face today! Having multiple copies of this new version will allow all of my students in both junior high and high school the opportunity to apply these skills to the many challenges they face!
