Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Being a Special Person.
Finley, Cathaleen; Thompson, Marian
The "Being a Special Person" segment of the Choices and Careers: Free to Choose program is based upon five areas of study; this document features summaries of the information in those five units along with the basic aims of each unit. "The Outside You" unit focuses on being natural and the importance of good health habits. "Your Money" seeks to help girls understand their income and plan effective ways to manage it. "Food and You" stresses the need for adequate nutrition with special descriptions given to kinds and names of traditional Indian food. "Alcoholism" seeks to create an awareness of the signs and dangers of teenage alcoholism and to cite its effects on the individual, marriage, and family life. "Coping With Parents" deals with some of the causes of parent-child conflict. "Life Span Planning" enumerates steps taken to help girls become aware of the need to plan what they want to do with their lives. An activities section and "Things to Do With Your Daughter" lists discussion topics, games, and other activities parents might use to help their daughters understand the concepts explored in these units.
