How Adolescents Approach Decisions: Changes over Grades Seven to Twelve and Policy Implications.
Lewis, Catherine C.
Child Development, v52 n2 p538-44 Jun 1981
A simulated peer-counseling situation was used to assess decision making among 108 adolescents in grades 7 through 12. As grade level increased, adolescents significantly more often mentioned potential risks and future consequences of decisions; recognized and treated vested interests with caution; and suggested an independent professional opinion be sought.
