        Because my activities off the 'net keep me very busy and are a boatload of fun, the following information is available to all teens who are already working to give themselves a great future and in the process of developing their personal education plans to achieve their dreams.

     The world is different today than it was when your parents grew up. Today's reality is adults made their own choices and plenty of those choices were at your expense.  In addition, many of the adults still making poor choices don't seem to have the capability of understanding the consequences of their choices.  You will have to be able to protect yourself in order not to end up their victim.  The good news is if you learn how to use your brain and practice regularly, it will be much easier for you to avoid the wrong people and the world will be a lot more fun.

       With that in mind, here are a couple of questions you may want to ask yourself.

      How do you know which colleges (or other entities) actually care about you and which ones just use highly sophisticated marketing to take advantage of your weaknesses to serve their own agendas?  

      How will you protect yourself from other people's bad choices? How will you know who is capable or even caring?

     For teens growing the skills to protect and help themselves, here are some strategies to consider.  Please remember a very important secret, though, that what you decide to implement and do is really up to you.  You make your own choices about what you choose to learn.
