What can I do to help make the right decisions?

Research shows that young people are influenced by many factors: their parents/carers, their teachers, their peers, their siblings, careers advisers, current trends and the media to name but a few. If you are a parent/carer you will want the best for your son or daughter, and therefore it is important to encourage them to keep an open mind during the decision making stage. Always encourage them to consider all their options before making their final decision.
