DARE Report By Officer Chad Gillen Making decisions about risky behavior This week in D.A.R.E. your students learned how to evaluate the consequences of risk taking behavior, including that of using drugs, tagging, and using weapons. Your child learned decision-making skills to help them evaluate the risks involved in a situation, the choices available to them, and the consequences of these choices.
Listed below are several topics for discussion to help you reinforce what your child learned:
* What is an important step in making a decision about a risky situation? (Looking at the consequence of the choices available)
* When undecided about a situation, whom could you talk it over with? (Parent, teacher, friend)
