The skill can be taught and in these three volumes the authors provide all the materials needed to teach a course on decision making at each age level.

Topics are selected to be age appropriate and the series includes: " Stealing- " Lying- " Social behaviours- " Risks- " Justice- " Loss,Grief and Bereavement- " Prejudice- " First love- " Disability- " Leaving home- " Family relationships.
