Sarah asks Johanna if she wants to hang out after school. Johanna is supposed to go home and clean her room or she'll be grounded but she really wants to hang out with the popular kids.
Evaluate the consequences of each choice
I don't want to die!!
Johanna knows that these girls are known to do drugs after school, and if she doesn't get home her mom will ground her for not cleaning her room. AGAIN!
Assess and choose the best choice
She can either go home and see her loving mom or boost her popularity by hanging out with these girls.
Think it over afterward
Johanna thought about what could happen (a little too deeply) She thought that she could go home and maybe not be as popular as she may want or she could go with the girls and most likely become involved with drugs which may lead to things such as death.
She knew going home to her mother was the best choice. So she told the girls that she would have to take a rain check today.
Even though her mom was mad at the condition of her room, Johanna knew she made the right decision to come home for she could have gotten into some serious trouble.
