Every parent worries about the well-being of his/her children as do grandparents and involved community members. How do we guide them to make the good decisions? How do we prepare them to make the responsible choice when offered alcohol, drugs, sexual encounters, gang membership, cheating, bullying, Internet liaisons and other frightening prospects in today’s world? How do we guarantee they won’t drive drunk, try suicide, harm themselves or others?
