Making clear decisions is important for healthy relationship development. Young people often "slide" into romantic and sexual involvements, and those "slides" can carry significant risks including unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. This lesson will introduce a low-risk "deciding" approach to relationships. Students will learn how to create boundary statements, and how to apply the heard, heart, and body tool when making decisions.
