Choices is aimed particularly at parents who want to instil social awareness in their children, and who are looking for ideas, activities, and ways of initiating discussion.

Abstract:  David McConkey says that he wrote this handbook "because I believe in the importance of individuals and families becoming more aware and taking action on global concerns. The chapters are about choices open to us: in values, political action, celebrations, education, and more." Choices is aimed particularly at parents who want to instil social awareness in their children, and who are looking for ideas, activities, and ways of initiating discussion. Many readers will want to turn to the chapter on "The Non-Sexist Family", or to the chapter on celebrations, which looks for ways of escaping the commercialized holidays society seeks to impose on us. The chapter on TV is called "The Battle for the Mind". This booklet isn't the answer to all your problems, of course, but is contains a range of helpful ideas.
