f You Had To Choose, What Would You Do? is a great collection of stories. I enjoyed just reading through them and thinking what would I have done at that age. There were even a couple of scenarios I found myself in as a child. I didn’t necessarily make the best choice every time. That knowledge helped me to understand the effectiveness of having those conversations with my children before they have to deal with these situations. The thought-provoking questions at the end of each story are crafted to really give some depth to the conversation with your child to gain more insight into their thought process. To have that kind of opportunity feels empowering to me as a parent. When we know what our children are really thinking we can provide them with the unique support they need. I will definitely be using this with my kids to help them understand how to make the right choice and listen to their inner guidance. This is a must have book for parents concerned about instilling values and a strong moral ethic in their children. The text doesn’t answer the questions for you so it can be tailored to fit the family values. This is one book I will be keeping on my shelf to use with my children when they are of age. This book is geared towards the 8-12 age range. The Kids Can Do It site offers books targeted to all ages from 8-18 with age-appropriate situations for different age groups.
