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?”
