11. Itโ€™s Okay to Say No

In a world full of yeses, itโ€™s okay to say no sometimes, in fact, itโ€™s smart to! You shouldnโ€™t feel obligated to say yes to everyone who applies a little bit of peer pressure to you, because that can lead to huge mistakes, like experimenting with drugs or having sex before youโ€™re ready to.

You, your parents, and of course the law determine what is okay for you to do at your age. But ultimately, youโ€™re the one who determines what you actually do when your parents and the police are nowhere to be found. And most often, it comes down to a simple question yes or no? To survive your teenage years, you need to know that itโ€™s okay to say no sometimes.
