Synopsis

A Boy's Guide to Making Really Good Choices by Jim George

It's never too early to give young boys a resource that will help them learn the skills for making right choices in life. A Boy's Guide to Making Really Good Choices is designed to help boys ages 8-12 learn how to think through their options, realize the possible consequences, and develop good decision-making skills. In this book, Jim George uses helpful stories and illustrations to walk boys through the kinds of choices they are likely to face each day - choices to...: listen to their parents; do their best in school, sports, and activities; select friends with care; be kind to siblings and others; and, help out at home and use good manners. Through the use of real-life scenarios, Jim George equips boys to build good character - the kind that will stay with them for life and honor God's standards.

Reviews

A much needed book for a boy who is seeking to work out his faith in the real world! The chapter on Choosing Your Friends was especially noteworthy as one of the most important psych-social foundation to be laid down during the preteen years is the template for selecting friends. Every parent needs this book for their boys with the recommendation that the chapters become topics of discussion. No doubt this book should also be part of the Sunday School curriculum. -Hale Akamine, PhD, clinical psychologist, executive director, Family Ministries Center
