According to Alex Chediak, author of Thriving at College and Preparing Your Teens for College, here are six foundational marks of a teen who will likely make responsible decisions as a young adult:

1. An accurate understanding of the biblical message (and a genuine personal conversion experience)

2. A commitment to cast off childishness and embrace adulthood

3. A commitment to pursuing godly relationships

4. A commitment to sexual purity, to glorifying God in singleness and to marrying honorably

5. A commitment to financial stewardship

6. A commitment to working for the Lord and being a diligent learner
