Your father and I have some serious concerns. Knowing what a conscientious young man you are, we are perplexed by some of your odd behavior lately. It seems you have lost direction, and we as your parents feel we have only ourselves to blame.
You’re a teenager now, and at a point in your life where you will be making increasingly important decisions. Your concerns will soon change from a simple aspect of whether to take a shower or not, or which dirty jeans and t-shirt to wear, to more advanced issues like, how you’ll earn money to support yourself and where you will attend college.
These new concerns may seem confusing, bewildering, baffling, and with answers that aren’t always clear. Surviving in this world can be challenging and so having strong problem solving skills is very important. To remedy this, first we have devised a test to determine your level of comprehension of what many would consider responsible behavior. This test you will find below. Hopefully, the results from this test will help determine which areas may need your special attention.
