Start with the types of ethical reasoning discussed in the reading. Describe an ethical decision in your life, and identify its type (utilitarian, egoism, deontology, relativism, justice).
Do you think you made the right decision? Why?

One ethical decision that I had to make recently came in the form of justice. I have taught my children that regardless of race, religion, culture or whatever else you should always treat everyone the same as you would want to be treated. My ex-husband, the father of two of my children, made a big scene about my daughter dating outside of her race. She is currently dating a gentleman who is from Honduras. My daughter was afraid that I would react the same way as her father and was scared to tell me about her relationship. When she did inform me, I asked her if she was happy and does he treat her good. She said yes to both questions and I told her that she has my blessing. I feel that everyone deserves to be treated with respect until that person gives you a reason not too.

I have engaged in many ethical decisions in my life, however the one I have chosen is utilitarian. When I was in high school, I had to make a decision whether to be a mom or finish high school. I had my first child in 10th grade. By the time I was in 12th grade I was expecting my second child. Generally statics would say many young girls drop out of high to be a mother. However I wanted to set an example for my kids and continue my education. Typically the responsible choice would be care for my children. Furthermore I had set goals and set up child care before hand. Although I did have to sacrifice many aspects as a young mother. I did have the opportunity to finish school and receive my high school diploma. This choice has played a major role in my kids life today, my sons are determined to finish high school and attend college. I must say it was all worth it in the end.
