This chapter argues for the central importance of free choice in the process of growing up in a free society. The only way that young persons can learn to make their own decisions is to acquire experience in making choices. We thus must provide the young with some practice in free choice before they are fully mature.

Keywords:   free choice, free society, young people, decision making
