Talk With Your Kids: Big Ideas is the second in the Talk With Your Kids series by Michael Parker. Once again Michael stirs up all of those tricky questions that parents often avoid such as 'what is infinity?' 'What is democracy?' Or even 'can I own a gun?' Big Ideas has over 100 conversations for parents to have with their children to try and tackle those large questions about life and the universe. 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: Big Ideas is a tool for parents to help their children understand aspects of the world that they might not even understand in the first place.
