Decisions is an interesting educational game. Its purpose is
to educate children about the dangers of drug use, but in addition to being educational,
Decisions is also fun.
One of the first things that catches the eye about
Decisions is the bright graphics of the game. This makes it a lot more
appealing—especially to children.
Decisions uses real-life scenarios to
help participants experience the anxieties and emotions associated with making decisions
involving drugs. An adult facilitator supervises the game, and the children play to
graduate. The children roll dice, and, depending on where they land, they have to act
out or answer the questions. This gives the parents an idea of their drug awareness.
The publisher of the game, Reality Unlimited, Inc., did a survey that
revealed that 98% of young people had their first drug-related experience with a family
member or a close friend. Decisions makes children think of ways to say no to friends
and family who encourage them to use drugs.
Decisions can be used at
home, school, church, or in various health and
social services programs. More
