1. Explore the Alternatives Make a list of possible alternatives for solving your problem. If you need more information to fully understand the problem or any of the alternatives, do the research now.

1.1. Consider the Consequences One by one, think through what might happen if you were to choose each alternative on your list. Be sure to do the following: Include both positive and negative results. Consider what probably would happen, not what you hope would happen. Ask yourself … how risky is each alternative? What are its chances of success? How would it affect my future? How would it affect others? --- If I try to get my friends' phone fixed, It might not get fully repaired, and my friend would know I broke it. If it does get perfectly repaired, then it would all be good. I think this is a good alternative because it's easy, and doesn't require as much money as buying him a new phone --If I lie to my friend and just ignore him when he talks to me about it, I might get in huge trouble if he tells someone about it. There really isn't a positive result in this solution. Apologizing and saying you'll get them another phone is good n every way but two. One: He will lose all apps and contacts. Two: You have to pay the full amount and it's expensive. This is probably the best solution, but maybe the worst one for you.

1.1.1. Identify Your Values Personal values may affect your decisions. Make sure to do the following: Consider your long-term goals as well as the beliefs of your family and culture. Consider your own and others’ health and safety, and your self-respect. Identify those choices that are a good match for your values. I am someone who does not like it when I let people down.

1.1.1.1. Decide and Act Use the information you have collected to compare the alternatives. Decide which one is best for you. Remember, sometimes there is more than one ‘right’ choice. Make a plan to act on your decision. You may need to break the plan into smaller steps. Set realistic deadlines for each step and then follow through with your plan. What I would do, Is first try to get it repaired and tell my friend that I broke it, and if it's not fully repaired, but him/her a new phone.

1.1.1.1.1. Evaluate the Results Sometime after you have put your decision into effect, take some time to review it. How did your decision work out? How has it affected your life? How has it affected others? What did you learn? If you could do it over again, what would you do differently?

1.1.1.1.2. It worked out great, my friend now has a new phone, in the future, I would try to avoid breaking my friends phone, I'll take extra caution

2. -Apologize and say that you'll buy another phone for them

3. Try and get the phone fixed without telling him.

4. Lie to your friend and ignore him/her when they talk to you

5. Accidentally broke friends phone after he/she lent it to me
