Wait! Remember our friends that went to Mr. Leavis' Health Class? They told us about the D.E.C.I.D.E. model! First is... Determine the decision! What's our problem? Well, you accidentally kicked the soccer ball into the ravine. Does this require thought Phil?
Good! Now we have to explore the options. Our best options are to ignore the balls and get new ones, or get a trusted adult and ask them for help. Now consider the consequences. If we get the ball, we could get seriously injured.
Yes because this could be dangerous.
You do make a great point.
Now Identify your values. We have a lot of things that are important to us. Right? Now we have to decide and defend. The healthiest decision would be to forget about the ball and walk away.
That went pretty well! I think Phil and I made the best decision possible. I could use the D.E.C.I.D.E. model a lot more now.
