Talk With Your Kids: Ethics has over 100 conversational and interactive questions for parents to discuss with their children to help decipher their child's stance on ethics, and hopefully sharpen the 'right values'. Michael Parker promotes the use of the questions for a platform for discussion with children, which will engage them more than a simple read of a book. Michael uses varied formatting such as: the use of multiple choice questions, visual scenarios or open ended questions to engage both children and parents alike and stimulate discussion. Talk With Your Kids asks universal questions; from modern ethical dilemmas such as, "is music downloading stealing?" and "what is climate change" to age-old questions like, "when is it ok to lie?"

Would you rather your child was smart or good? Academic achievement is not the only important aspect of raising children. We also need to think consciously as to how we develop the next generation to be ethical thinkers and decent members of society. The main place children learn basic morals and ethics is not from school or religion but from their parents in the home. Conversation is vital, and this book prompts discussion by posing 101 ethical questions and their logical progressions. The questions are perfectly pitched to the world of the 10 to 15 year old: from friendships, sport, parties and bullying, through to animal rights and climate change.About the Author:
