I think every high school should teach classes in decision making. Let kids make decisions on different things everyday in class, and discuss the outcomes.

In high school I made a decision to party all night and call in sick on Saturday morning. I thought I made a good decision, I had a lot of fun, I also got fired.

Some people would blame the employer since it was my first offense, I knew it was my fault, and I made sure never to lose a job again. Many people would never learn that simple lesson.
Have to agree. Can't mollycoddle people which is a word I learned from an old time teacher back in the day. I think a hitch in the military helps. Boot camp and a hitch in one of the 4 branches of the military straightened out a lot of youngsters that were headed down the wrong road. Drugs weren't available when I was growing up so there's that extra element of danger for our kids to look out for.
