Teaching kids about making good choices

To do or not to do? That is the question! Giving children choices helps them feel they have some power and control over what they do. It’s a step in growing up. From deciding which toy you want to play with as a toddler to what subjects for graduation, children of all ages must make decisions. Plus, choices have consequences. Learning from poor choices make an excellent foundation for making better choices in future.
