I am posting this today because I think we sometimes view meta-cognition as an isolated strategy taught in school. However, I believe any process involving making a decision is a form of meta-cognition...so here is a article that we may want to consider...including what role we may play in the areas of the teens' development discussed here.

How teens' development affects their decision-making capacity
Adolescents' development in three areas -- identity, independence and peer relationships -- forms their sense of self, writes Stephen Gray Wallace, director of the Center for Adolescent Research and Education at Susquehanna University. In this blog post, Wallace and 15-year-old Peter Worzala, describe how attending summer camp can contribute to this development, and how a high sense of self improves teens' decision-making capacity and ability to resist negative societal pressures.
