Maybe you’re allowed to go more places with your friends. Perhaps you’re allowed to stay up later. With greater freedom comes greater responsibility. Remember, you are responsible for your actions and for the decisions that you make. Every decision you make has a consequence. When you make good decisions, good things happen. When you make poor decisions, bad things can happen. It is very important that you know how to make good decisions.
